Is there a way to add bunch of users to a SP Group at once using web service?


I have several variables (varApprovers; varTeamLeads; varVPs; varManagers) and would like to add these to a SP Group.

I believe that the UserGroup.AddUserCollectionToGroup web service call would work. The example in the link illustrates how a group of users (specified in a XML list) can be loaded into an UserGroup.


The built-in web services only provide the functionality to add one user at a time.

You could, however, write your own web service that sites in your SharePoint environment to handle these type of requests.
