Whilst extending the group API, is it possible to add parameters for the group tools? Currently one seems to get none. They are not even inherited from…

I was able to use the mapping spreadsheet from Managing REST Integrations in Learn: The REST Integrations Tool for System Administrators which allows me to create a custom system role for REST API app.  However, if an administrator user is enrolled in a course, the user api will return 404 error:   Unexpected HTTP status: 404 Not… (Show more)
