REST API to create user group is "/service/xusers/secure/groups", Please refer to the below example on the usage.

curl -v -u '<username>:<password>' 'http://<ranger_host_address>:<ranger_port>/service/xusers/secure/groups' -H 'X-XSRF-HEADER: ""' -H 'Content-Type: application/json' -H 'X-Requested-With: XMLHttpRequest' --data-binary '{"name":"temporary-group","description":"test"}'

The request payload contains the user group name and description info.
