Working with Tempo API - Get User Groups

I'm having a number of problems with the Tempo API--not sure where the stumbling point is.

For example, I'm trying to get the groups of a user: When I go to `` the output is

{"self":"","key":"nicholsp","name":"nicholsp","emailAddress":"","avatarUrls":{"16x16":"","24x24":"","32x32":"","48x48":""},"displayName":"Nichols, Paul","active":true,"timeZone":"US/Eastern","groups":{"size":26,"items":[]},"expand":"groups"}

The fact that it says ` u'groups': { u'items': [], u'size': 26}` implies that I'm getting something (26 is the correct number of groups I am in) but I can't seem to find out how to actually get those names.

The expand tells the REST api to also include all the group related information. That is why the groups section is:


All expand key values can be used with the expand parameter from the REST GET request.

Ah, perfect! I was so close. Thanks! Do you happen to know where in the docs this is, if at all? I feel like I'm missing a chunk of them.

Hi Paul,

It is indeed in the documentation, but most people look over it :) Checkout the Expansion in the REST API's section:

Ah! These _are_ the docs I'm looking for. Thank you--I couldn't find them. Do you know if there are other hidden docs somewhere that might help me answer this?
