What is changing?
Confluence Cloud is moving away from
groupId as the unique identifier for
Groups . See Updates to Group REST APIs and Group Webhook Events for more details and Get Groups API enhanced to support group lookups based on access type for new APIs to get groups based on their roles.
Confluence Cloud is officially starting the 6 month deprecation period. At the end of the 6 months deprecation period, ie, Mar 27, 2022, groupNames will no longer be immutable.
What do I need to do?
- Determine if your team is impacted and needs to make the switch to use the new field
- Make the changes in the next 6 months.
By when do I need to do it?
Mar 27, 2022
REST APIs with
groupName will still be available for use but
groupName will no longer be immutable after this date.
