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

The listed boolean parameter can be used to override the group's default setting. It affects whether other group member are able to see the member's user details. Users are able to change this setting later through the user interface in their group registration options.
