Google API Bug: Google Groups Settings returning wrong value – You need to invite!!!

So.. This is wierd..

Apparently, If you try and set “whocaninvite” in groups settings via API to “NONE_CAN_INVITE”, the API returns the value as “ALL_MANAGERS_CAN_INVITE”.

If you set other settings say “ALL_MANAGERS_CAN_INVITE” or “ALL_MEMBERS_CAN_INVITE” it works fine and confirms by returning the same value back.

This is the same if you do via GAM tool or via their web portal to change a group settings

 

 

Above, if you select “Managers of the group” and save.. and then go back to the group, you will see the tick gone.

Apparently not affecting everyone.. Well it was and then they said they fixed it, and I said.. Nope.. So they have to open a new bugĀ 72470856 for this one.

C’mon google.. you guys are the coders right? the developers?
