v1-v3 APIs have been deprecated

Don't worry, these APIs are deprecated, but they aren't shut off yet.

All new development with APIs should use the newest version of our API: /1. API /1 is based on RESTful principles, is secured by OAuth 2.0, and provides JSON messages, search, pagination, sorting, and filtering.

Get Group by ID

Think of groups as departments. Groups enable you to split your user base into smaller pieces that can be more easily managed.

For more info, see Groups.

Resource URL





Set to the group’s ID with .xml appended. For example, 123456.xml. If you don’t know the group’s id, use the Get all groups API call to return all groups and their id values.

Sample Response

  <reference nil="true"></reference>
  <title>No such group</title>
  <message>No Group found by Reference or ID '2878'</message>

Response Elements


Group’s unique ID in OneLogin.


Group name.


Deprecated. Will always show the attribute nil="true".

Sample cURL Request

Be sure to replace placeholder values surrounded by { } with actual values.

curl -u {api_key}:x -X GET{group_id}.xml

Postman Collection

Be sure to set Postman-specific environment variables indicated by {{ }}.
