Large membership changes

If you are making large membership changes, say more than a few hundred, your experience will be better if you split your activity into adds or deletes of fifty to a hundred members at a time.  This tends to give you immediate feedback on successful changes and avoids possible session or connection timeouts.

Use of POST method

Warning: This use of POST is deprecated and will not be supported in future API versions.

The Groups v2 API accepts the POST method for two purposes:

  1. URI too long
    If your uri would be too long for likely transport to the web service you may enclose it in a POST, with the elements:


    Code Block
    <span class="_method"> GET | PUT | DELETE </span>
    <span class="_uri"> uri </span>
    


    included in the POST document.  The path components of you actual URL must match those in the posted "_uri".

  1. PUT content too big
    If your PUT content would be too big for likely transport to the web service you may enclose it in a POST, with the element:


    Code Block
    <span class="_method">PUT</span>
    


    included in the POST document.
