Check Existence of User in SharePoint Group using JSOM

While working with SharePoint objects it’s required to check whether user is present in which SharePoint group.Hence, the below script comes in handy to check existence of user in SharePoint group using JSOM.

ExecuteOrDelayUntilScriptLoaded(IsUserExists, “sp.js”);
var spfGroup;
var spfUsers;
var context;
var spfGroupCollection;
var spfUser;

function IsUserExists() {
context = SP.ClientContext.get_current();
spfGroupCollection = context.get_web().get_siteGroups();
spfUser = context.get_web().get_currentUser();
spfGroup = spfGroupCollection.getById(101);
spfGroup = spfGroupCollection.getByName(“SPF Owners”);
context.executeQueryAsync(Function.createDelegate(this, this.OnGetGroupSuccess), Function.createDelegate(this, OnFailure));


function OnGetGroupSuccess() {
spfUsers = spfGroup.get_spfUsers();
context.executeQueryAsync(Function.createDelegate(this, this.OnGetuserSuccess), Function.createDelegate(this, OnFailure));

function OnGetuserSuccess() {
var userEnumerator = spfUsers.getEnumerator();
while (userEnumerator.moveNext()) {
var spfUser = userEnumerator.get_current();
if (spfUser.get_id() == spfUser.get_id()) {
alert(“User Exists”);
} else {


function OnFailure(sender, args) {
alert(“Failed to execute IsCurrentUserMemberOfGroup method”);

Hope this blog helps 🙂
