What I said "Group/Role" Mean?
A group can have many users, a user can be in many
groups.(I think the relationship between user and group is "multiple to multiple", not "one to one") And we should manage groups and users by API, we need create/update/delete a group, add/update/delete users in groups by API.
A list of roles for the user that collectively represent who the user is; e.g., "Student", "Faculty". And we can add a role and assign a user to a role.


My understanding:
I scanned your supplied APIs and returned user Json messages, but I didn't see any APIs or properties like the "Group". Your "Group" property I saw seems not the same one as I said.
Property "Role" seems to be the same one called "PermissionSet" in you user entity, it is also need to be confirmed.

Background:
Because Azure Active Directory(AAD) has group and role property, and if Replicon has group and role property, when we create a group and add a user in the AAD, it will create a group and add a user in the group in Replicon by Replicon API.
If Replicon has no group and role property, we will only implement users without group and role. When we create a user in Azure Active Directory, it will create the same user in Replicon by Replicon API.

What I want to get from you:
1. Can you confirm if your "PermissionSet" meets our definition of "Role"? Our understanding("Permission" is equal to I said 'Role") of this property is right?
2. Do you Replicon has such property whose relationship with user is as we said "multiple to multiple"? ("Department","Location" seem not accord to I said "group" definition)

Hi Sun,

We may need further details on the same. We believe that you are using the Gen 3 version of Replicon. For the Gen 3 version of Replicon we use Web Services. The Group service is available by name of the group, for instance Location, cost center etc. We would like to understand about the one to one association that you need. Why do you need the association? 

I have asked our support team to reach out to you and confirm the same.

Thanks,
Aashnee

Firstly thanks for your help. Actually what I want "Group" APIs are those via which we can add/update/delete the users belong to corresponding groups. As my research on your available services, Dapartment/Cost cernter doesn't support such operation, it seems that the only way to change user groups is to update users themselves. So I think you Replicon mismatch the "Group" definition I said. That's what I want to confirm.
