Cable (Spline/Path) controlled by two connectors (2.8)

Hello, I would like to create a cable that has 2 connectors, that I can attach anywhere and have my cable adapt to the connector position. My approach was to hook (modifier) the endpoints of the Path to my connectors. But in blender 2.8 there are no vertex groups of paths anymore!? What is the supposed workflow now?

Thanks in advance!

2.79 didn’t have vert groups for curves either. In edit mode select a curve control point, then CTRL + H.

Yes it worked. First set the vertex to the axis position then hook with ctrl + h.
