ePO Web Api - Create Group

Am I missing something or is it not possible to create a group using epo web api?

Please create a function for this in a future version

You can use the system.importSystem command.  When you pass it the computer name parameter add a backslash.

To test this out easily you can use the API explorer in the ePO Tools Exchange or use a browser with the follwing URL.  Once authenticated you should see the new group. 


Subgroups can be create by adding addtional groupnames with backslashes

Can the Web API be used to edit the 'Notes' field on the created group (similar to system.setUserProperties)?

Re: ePO Web Api - Create Group

Bumping an old thread to avoid duplicate posts. Has this been updated in ePO 5.1.2? I tried to call system.importSystem as follows but it just created an unmanaged system in the lost&found.

wget -q -O - --no-check-certificate --user=USERNAME --password=PASSWORD https://server:8443/remote/system.importSystem?names=testgroup\&branchNodeID=2

Any advice would be appreciated.
