Adding Users to group using rest API - Powershell



I am running into an issue trying to call the Rest API Method using Powershell. I am sure I am calling the URL properly with my access token and other info. Although I am running into an issue. 

I have a script that can Grab the users ID and Group Id I want to add them too. The Last step is confusing me.

$gId = $group.groupId

$aId = $user.accountId

$Headers = @{"Authorization"="Basic $($authinfo)"}

$id = @{
          accountId = "$aId"

$body = $id | ConvertTo-Json

params = @{
Uri = "$gId"
Method = 'POST'
Body = $body
ContentType = 'application/json'

Invoke-RestMethod @params -Headers $Headers



Invoke-RestMethod : The remote server returned an error: (400) Bad Request.


Changed URL to default - I replace my site in the script.

Not sure what the issue was. It started working the next day. Might be a limit how many times API is called? 

If I find the output of the Uri it is this:
"accountId": "5f31c34f1ac29c00458906f5"

 so the Account ID / group Ids should be valid.
