How to use PageSeeder's Web service API

invite member

/groups/{group}/members/invite [POST]



Invite a member to a group

Adds a member to a group in PageSeeder.

If the member specified (with the email address) is non existent, it will be created.

The email must be less than 100 characters and be a valid Email address.

Group membership parameters

All group membership parameters are optional, and will default to the group's default values.

The notification parameter must be one of "immediate", "daily" or "none".

The role parameter must be one of "guest", "reviewer", "contributor", "manager", "approver", "moderator-and-approver", "moderator".

The group invitation behavior follows the value of the project property acceptInvitationRequired .

Additional information specific to the group can also be attached to the user using the details fields field1 to field15
