Hi @EddieMay ,

I think solution provided by you is similar to my requirement but what i want is to Create group if Group is not Present and to add user to that Group(Group present by default or Group newly Created). I think createGroup service is to be used here but how to combine my both statement to Create group if not present and to add user to it

 

 

 

Thanks,

Hi @PravinGupta,

When you write,  "i want is to Create group if Group is not Present" - you will have to do a group lookup as mentioned in that post I referred to -https://api-explorer.alfresco.com/api-explorer/#!/groups/listGroups. If the group doesn't exist, then you will have to create the group https://api-explorer.alfresco.com/api-explorer/#!/groups/createGroup. To add a person to your existing or new group - https://api-explorer.alfresco.com/api-explorer/#!/groups/createGroupMembership - here's the documentation.

Also look at this api - https://api-explorer.alfresco.com/api-explorer/#!/groups/listGroupMembershipsForPerson & this documentation to see if the user belongs to a group or groups. 

In psuedo code:

if (!group exist) {

create group

add user to group

} else if (!user member of group) {
add user to group
}

I think that might work. Caveat: Not tested!
