Stanford Universityâ€™s Middleware and Integration Services (MaIS) provide integration services and technologies to the campus community to facilitate the management of enterprise data of people, organizations, courses, workgroups, and authority.
Workgroups at Stanford exist as a way to identify a group of people by name as a tool to be used by other applications and services. The Stanford University Workgroup API provides RESTful access to the Workgroup manager. Via HTTP GET/POST calls users can create, edit, or delete workgroups, add or delete members or administrators, and more. Responses are XML formatted.
