Getting Group members via API


(Jay Pfaffman) #1

I’m trying to get group members from the API. From How to reverse engingeer the API, I think I should be able to get group info from

https://host/admin/groups/custom/groupname.json

But all I get is an empty browser window.

Is it a publicly accessible group?

As this works
https://www.sitepoint.com/community/groups/teamleaders/members.json

Aha! That helped. My problem (I think) was that I was going through the admin path.

I don’t see any links to the group that way (https://host//groups/groupname).

Thanks very much.

If you want to access a private group, you will have to use a Discourse API Key and username in the query. Just be sure you don’t let that key get out to anywhere.
