Symptoms

When attempting to add the current user to a group via the API REST, the response is an error 400 with an html that reads:

Problems executing method (waggle.core.exceptions.XRuntimeException: User does not have necessary roles.).

User has CECEnterpriseUser role assigned through its IDCS group.

STEPS:

1. Make a POST request to the endpoint
  /osn/social/api/v1/connections
  from this request obtain the apiRandomID and the cookies needed for the next requests.
2. Make a POST request to the endpoint
  /osn/social/api/v1/groups/{group id}/members
  (where {group id}is the Id of the group to add a user) with the following JSON payload:

{
 "isGroup" : false,
 "member" : "12345",
 "role" : "GROUP_MEMBER"
}

(where 12345 is the Id of the user to add to the group)
