Add team member ability via CLI/REST

When we assign "Add team member" ability to a  role, Users are able to add/remove members via UI with out any issue.

The same  feature doesn't work via CLI for the same privilege, This feature is required when user have to manage multiple users in the team.


1. User able to manage team members via CLI saves time.

2. Listing down the users to check the movers/leavers for the auditing purpose makes easy.


Please refer this IBM case TS012214543 created for more details

    Use case/actions trying to be carried out.

    User have "Add team member" enabled for a role, They are able to list/add/remove members via UI without any issue.

    The same feature doesn't work with REST API/CLI for the same privilege, This feature is required when user have to manage multiple users in the team and automate the tasks.

    User trying to achieve below in automated way

    The team have to do quarterly review of team members and send the report to Engineering lead.

    Remove the movers/leavers from team.

    Report on current role members within Teams.

    Add new members into team.

    Validate the privileged role users regularly.

    The error faced while doing the task

    udclient -username XXXX -weburl getAllUsersInRoleForTeam -role "Role1" -team "Team1"

    getAllUsersInRoleForTeam - Error processing command: The current user cannot manage security.

    udclient -username XXXX -weburl getTeam -role "Role1" -team "Team1"

    getTeam - Error processing command: User "XXXX " lacks privilege: Manage Security


    User takes good amount of time to check the details from UI.

    Monitoring multiple users from UI makes the job tedious.

    Thank You for adding a new IDEA/RFE. Together with development we will triage it and if needed ask for clarifications and then decide how to proceed.
