#8202 closed enhancement (fixed)

Setting up Group_Type via Group REST API Request

Reported by: exoconsult's profile ExoConsult Owned by: espellcaste's profile espellcaste
Milestone: 6.0.0 Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 5.0.0
Component: REST API Keywords:


There's a missing argument when creating or updating a group via REST API : Group_Type.

For the moment, it's not possible to set up Group_Type with a call to the REST API creation group endpoint.

Call_Create : POST {{host}}/wp-json/buddypress/v1/groups/
Call_Update : POST {{host}}/wp-json/buddypress/v1/groups/%d

Group defined with bp_groups_register_group_type.

In WordPress API, you can set up post format via the rest api by using the arg "format".

@imath How are you handling situations like those? Do you close the ticket here or wait for the release to be published first?

I think we can close this ticket now the issue is fixed in the GH plugin.
