I have created a public site in alfresco and I am trying to add members through the REST API. Bu the request I'm using is throwing an HTTP 500 error code. Here is the path I'm using:
@PUT /alfresco/service/api/sites/mysite/memberships
{"person":{"userName":"daniel"},"role":"SiteCollaborator"}

And this is the error message:

What am I missing here? Is this a bad server configuration?
