How to modify roles for an LDAP group with the REST API?

Path Finder

Hi guys,

Sorry to bother you these days, but it's not so easy work with the REST API without some examples.
Now I need to change roles for an LDAP group: no example, no documentation at all.

Can someone please help me?

I know that the end point is


but at this end point, no roles are visible. How can I modify roles for a certain LDAP group?

Thanks and regards.

If you are using a POST to this endpoint, you might want to double-check that you are passing in the correct stanza name for the setting you want to adjust in authentication.conf. See also:
