The Edit Group smart service allows you to select a group and update any of its available fields, including its name, description, and parent group.
The Edit Group smart service can only be executed by a system administrator or by an administrator of the group. Attempting to run this node without sufficient rights causes an error message to be sent to the process administrator and pauses the process. This also occurs if you attempt to rename a group using an existing name or specify an object that does not exist.
Attempting to execute this task as a Basic User causes a run-time exception that pauses the process and sends an alert to the Process Administrator.

This section contains tab configuration details specific to this smart service. For more information about common configurations see the Process Node Properties page.
The following characters are not allowed in group names.
|Delegated Creation?||Integer||No||0 (No)||The default values are Yes or No. The integer 1 equals yes. 0 equals no.|
|Parent Group||Group||No||No||The user account that activates this activity must have Administrator rights for the parent group in order to add this new group as a child.|
|Membership Policy||Number||Yes||No||Closed||Default value options: Closed, Exclusive, Automatic|
|Visibility||Number||Yes||No||Public||Default value options: Public, Personal, Restricted|
If the activity is run without being assigned to a user (or a group) you must specify values for each of the node inputs listed.
Selecting a Personal visibility input value sets other associated node input values automatically. Be aware that the node input lists on the Data tab and the dropdown lists displayed task form are not automatically filtered when this happens to show only valid options for the visibility. Any invalid selections (made by you at design time, or by your users at runtime) are ignored when the group is created.
If the Visibility input is set to Personal, the following settings are configured automatically.
The Edit Group smart service is available as an expression function that can be executed inside a saveInto on a Interface Component or as part of a Web API.
