Need a way to get a list of all groups defined via JSON REST API

The documentation for the Collaborator REST API for the GroupService.getGroupList command states that if no review ID is provided, a “list of all groups visible to the user” will be provided.  However, when this API command is issued with a user which has admin privileges (in fact, it has all possible privileges for a user), the result is not the entire list of all groups, but instead just the groups that the user is a member of. 

I can’t find the location at the moment, but somewhere in the Collaborator API documentation it specifically states that all groups can be viewed by calling this API command with an admin-level user, which makes sense, but that’s not the way it’s working for me. 

In the end, what I need is a way to get a list of all groups defined on the given Collaborator service.


Also I tried to label this post API, but there is no API label.


This is Collaborator 11.2 and the JSON API

    I'm having the same problem in Collaborator 13.0.13001

    The documentation is still incorrect / functionality not implemented correctly
