Published on 25-Feb-2015 | Comments

Below is a sample code snippet using JavaScript client object model, which gets the list of SharePoint groups the current user is part of.

<script type="text/javascript"> var clientContext = new SP.ClientContext.get_current(); var oWeb = clientContext.get_web(); var currentUser = oWeb.get_currentUser(); var allGroups = currentUser.get_groups(); clientContext.load(allGroups); clientContext.executeQueryAsync(OnSuccess, OnFailure); function OnSuccess(sender, args) { var grpsEnumerator = allGroups.getEnumerator(); while(grpsEnumerator.moveNext()) { //This object will have the group instance //which the current user is part of. //This is can be processed for further //operations or business logic. var group = grpsEnumerator.get_current(); //This gets the title of each group //while traversing through the enumerator. var grpTitle = group.get_title(); } } function OnFailure(sender, args) { console.log(args.get_message()); } </script>
