An affiliate is a connection between a group and an external entity. GWS does not normally have direct access to the external systems, so these resources are a bit nebulous and asynchronous. The local resource is an indicator that the affiliation exists. Changes to groups and group memberships are automatically, asynchronously, transmitted to any affiliates. When a group is deleted all affiliations are also deleted.

    The group_id can be a group name (cn) or a regid.
