You must send an array of entities, even if adding a single user. For each user that you wish to add, specify the user ID and the roles the user should possess. For possible role values, see the description of the roles.roleName field in the users resource’s field descriptions.

If you specify a user that is already a member of the group, their existing roles are overwritten with the specified permissions.
