How to force users to join a Social Group using Jive v3 Core API

Version 2



    There may be times when you need to force a user to become a member of a Social Group, and you do not want to first invite the user and then wait for them to accept the invitation to the group.  One way to get a user to become a member of a Social Group is through the use of a Jive v3 API call. This is also an alternative to functionality that was previously a part of an un-supported extension called Admin Essentials Plugin, which is no longer available for Jive.
