Directory API provisions groups with default settings

When you create a group using the Directory API or using tools that use the Directory API, such as Google Cloud Directory Sync (GCDS), the Group is always created with the following default settings:

  • Group directory: Do not list this group in the directory
  • Join the group: Anyone in the organization can ask
  • Add members: Owners and managers of the group
  • Invite members: Owners and managers of the group
  • Allow new users not in {domain}: No
  • View members: Owners and managers of the group
  • View topics: All members of the group
  • Post: Anyone from your domain can post
  • Moderate messages: None

Best practices

After creating the group, you can change the settings using either the Group's management interface or the Groups Settings API.
