    How to get an already existing GroupType object

    Emma Ogilvie

      Hi,

       

      I'm using the tableau server rest api for java to programmatically upload workbooks and modify their respective permissions per user/group specified in the active directory.  However, when I look through the RestApiUtils.java file that I downloaded from the sample site I don't understand how I am supposed to access a pre-existing "GroupType" object in the active directory. 

       

      Additionally, a credential is initialized per one user that signs into the server.  Since this credential is a parameter for creating a group, only one person (the user that logs in) can be in each newly created group? Am I understanding that correctly?

       

      Thank you for all of the help!
