Please I'm new to Alfresco and I tried to create a group using curl on my command line terminal. Here's the code:

curl -uadmin:rockstar -X PUT { "newGroup" : ["authorityType" : "GROUP", "shortName" : "COMPUTER_SCIENCE_400LVL", "fullName" : "COMPUTER_SCIENCE_400_LEVEL", "displayName" : "COMPUTER_SCIENCE_400LVL", "url" : "api/groups/COMPUTER_SCIENCE_400LVL", "zones" : ["APP.DEFAULT", "AUTH.ALF"] "http://localhost:8080/alfresco/service/api/groups"

 

But I got this error:

 

curl: (3) [globbing] unmatched brace in column 1
curl: (6) Could not resolve host: newGroup
curl: (6) Could not resolve host:
curl: (3) [globbing] bad range in column 2
