active Boolean Specifies whether the Group is active, meaning that it can be used – True/False.
diagram String An internal link to a map resource file that can be used in the Axonize Portal instead of Google Maps.
parentId String Specifies the parent Group of this Group. This property enables you to define sub-Groups.

“id”: “string”,

“name”: “string”

defaultLocation Object The GPS coordinates that were defined when the entity was created or its definition was modified. This enables the entity to be represented on a map.

This location is automatically assigned to all entities in the group to which no specific location was defined.

“address”: “string”,

defaultLocation/lat Double The latitude coordinate. For example –

“lat”: 0,

defaultLocation/lng Double The longitude coordinate. For example –

“lng”: 0,

defaultLocation/updateDate DateTimeOffset The timestamp when the location was last updated. For example –

“updateDate”: “2018-02-21T16:06:34.725Z”
