Nintex for Office 365 Web Request error

I'm using the Nintex Web Request Action in Office 365 to create a SharePoint group that is failing and getting a Soap error in the response code:


soap:ClientServer was unable to read request. ---> Request format is invalid: Missing required soap:Body element.


I set the Web Request up by using these instructions but modifying slightly for the AddGroup method:Getting Started 


The general idea is to put an item in a SharePoint list and create a SharePoint group. I've tried changing some of the parameters around, but I keep getting the same error. Maybe I'm going about this the wrong way. Any ideas?


The Web Request is configured as below:


URL: https://<SITE>/sites/DEV/_vti_bin/UserGroup.asmx

Method: SOAP 1.1, Soap action:

Body: (Content selected)

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

<soap:Envelope xmlns:xsi="" xmlns:xsd="" xmlns:soap="">


    <AddGroup xmlns="">

      <groupName>{Current Item:Short Name}</groupName>

      <ownerIdentifier>{Current Item:Site Owners}</ownerIdentifier>


      <defaultUserLoginName>{Current Item:Site Owners}</defaultUserLoginName>

      <description>{Current Item:Short Description}</description>
