External groups and REST API

My APS instance is configured to get groups from an LDAP.

I am using the REST API to start process instances and assign tasks to groups.

I found out that I cannot use the group name in the posted json: I have to specify the "group id".

Because the process is started from a remote client, I will need to get the ID of the groups doing other calls.

Is there a better way to do it? Is there a way to use the group name?

I am using APS 1.8.1 and a java client.
