We would like to create similar asset hirearchy Group using POST API call as shown below.

If its a device group then it’s the Inventory API rather than Group API.

You can create a group with POST to …/inventory/managedObjects


{type: “c8y_DeviceGroup”, c8y_IsDeviceGroup: {}, name: “aaaaaaaaaa”, c8y_Notes: “”}

Then add a device to it.

POST to …inventory/managedObjects//childAssets


{references: [{managedObject: {id: “”}}]}
