Bugzilla::Webservice::Group

NAME

Bugzilla::Webservice::Group - The API for creating, changing, and getting information about Groups.

DESCRIPTION

This part of the Bugzilla API allows you to create Groups and get information about them.

METHODS

See Bugzilla::WebService for a description of how parameters are passed, and what STABLE, UNSTABLE, and EXPERIMENTAL mean.

Although the data input and output is the same for JSONRPC, XMLRPC and REST, the directions for how to access the data via REST is noted in each method where applicable.

Group Creation and Modification

create
