  • 1.  Add Group Participant through Xog

    Posted Aug 19, 2015 10:16 AM

    I have a xog file that can add an individual resource to a project as a participant. I was wondering if anyone has the xog syntax to do the same for a system group? System groups are added as paricipants through the UI by the following steps

    1. Navigate to a project

    2. Navigate to the team tab of a project

    3. Drop down team tab arrow and select participants

    4. update the show drop down from "Resources" to "System Groups"

    5. Click add button and select and add a group


    Xog Syntax to add an individual resource as participant

    <NikuDataBus xmlns:xsi="" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="../xsd/nikuxog_project.xsd">

          <Header action="write" externalSource="NIKU" objectType="project" version="6.0.11"/>


            <Project name="******" projectID="xxxxx">


                <resource userName="xxxx"/>

    The project XOG schema and handler does not have support for participant system groups at this time, it only accepts individual resources that it can look up as valid user/resource records in the system.


    Now, it may work when you have a template that already has system groups listed on it, and you use XOG to create a project from the template (I haven't tried this but that might bring across the existing system groups), but that would be the extent of it.

    please post your answer, if any one is able to add security group as participant by xog or any other workaround.

    As above, we can only add system groups as participants via the application.


    (a not-very-elegant workaround might be to add the individual resources who are members of the system group as participants via XOG - a regularly scheduled process (in order to pick up new group members and/or new projects) could do this. Not sure I would like that if there are lots of members of the "system group", but it'd be OK if there were just a few (eg. admins?). Otherwise, build a portlet that shows projects that don't have the system group as a participantpant, script a manual system-administrator work process to run the portlet and then 'correct' the data.)

    Thanks for the reply. we decided to stick with the manual efforts by the PM to add it through the UI
