Last updated on JANUARY 27, 2020

Applies to:

Oracle Unified Directory - Version 12.2.1.4.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

How can a member be added to a group using the OUD REST API?

There are no examples in the following references showing how to add an attribute to an entry -
Using Oracle Unified Directory REST APIs with Postman

REST API for Oracle Unified Directory Data Management - Use Cases

SCIM REST API for Oracle Unified Directory - Use Cases

REST Data Management is available in OUD versions 12.2.1.4+.
REST Administration Management is available in OUD versions 12.2.1.3+.
For more info -
OUD 12c - Testing and Using the Admin REST APIs for OUD Administration and Configuration (Doc ID 2441097.1)

Since REST Data Management requires 12.2.1.4.0 and there is no direct upgrade from 11g to 12.2.1.4.0, then an installation of OUD version 12.2.1.3.0 is required to upgrade to version 12.2.1.4.0.
