New User from API and Assign Security Group


We are testing with Suite 8 RC.

First, is it possible to create a new User from the API? When we try, we get ‘Users is not a module’.
As a less than ideal workaround, we are creating an Employee instead, which is triggering the creation of a User.

2nd Question: We have a default security group for Users. If we create a new user from the UI, the default group gets assigned properly. However, if we create a user through the api as above (create employee which creates user), then the security group does not get assigned.

Any help would be appreciated.
