How to use PageSeeder's Web service API

invite self

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



Invite self to a group

Allows a member to join themselves to a group in PageSeeder.

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 invitation behavior follows the value of Group Setting "Self Registration" as follows:

  • Normal: The member is joined immediately to the group
  • Moderated: A request is emailed to a moderator who must approve it
  • Confirmed: The member is sent an email with a link that they must follow

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

notification The member's notification option in the group no string

Undocumented permissions requirements.


If successful the created membership is returned as a <membership> element wrapped in a <membership-creation> element.

If the serviced attempted but failed to send the email notification to the user, it will be indicated using one of:

<membership-creation [welcome-email-failed="true"]
   <membership id="[membership id]"
      <member id="[member id]"
              firstname="[first name]"
         <fullname>[full name]</fullname>
      <group id="[group id]"
