Google Groups Settings API Concepts

The Groups Settings API updates and retrieves an existing Google group's settings. Through the API, you can manage a group's settings for internal and external group access, edit the group's notifications, configure discussion archiving and message moderation, and customize your account's user groups.

Groups Settings API data model

The Groups Settings API operates on a Groups resource which represents how users within an account communicate and collaborate with groups of other people. Each group is identified by the group's email address.

The API data model is based on the Groups collection of the account's groups. Each group has a unique set of configuration settings.
