Hi @mehdi - Can you check the URI format?

New group creation must have a POST /wiki/rest/api/group

User must be a site admin to create a new group

hi @Niranjan , sorry i put the wrong code

this is my code 

const bodyData2 = {"name": "RS-managers"};
AP.request({ url: "/rest/api/group",
type: 'PUT',
contentType: "application/json",
Accept: 'application/json',
Authorization: "bWJvdWF6emEuc3BlY3RydW1ncm91cGVAZ21haWwuY29tOnd6UGhpRXBWd1JTN0E0aDhrRVRyODhGRg==",
data: JSON.stringify(bodyData2),
success: function (data) {console.log(data)}
}).catch(function (error

@mehdi - Can you try with POST method ? PUT method is generally used for update.

Hello @mehdi 

A 405 error is telling you that the request is incorrectly formed, which means your code which is making the request has a mistake in it.

Try doing some basic testing of the structure of the request first, using a REST API test tool like Postman. If the request works, then some other part of your code is incorrect.
