SharePoint - view the user groups I own?


  • This seems like such a basic thing - either I'm too dumb to figure out the obvious, or SharePoint is too dumb to have this obvious feature.

    I want to see which user groups I own.

    Can anybody confirm if this is possible, in any kind of relatively straightforward way?

    Many thanks.

  • Do you want to know how many groups you have been assigned as "Group Owner" as shown below?

  • Get Current Logged-in User Group Collection Using SPServices JQuery Library

    The $().SPServices JavaScript Add-on provide the function $().SPServices. GetGroupCollectionFromUser,

    which will help to get details of all groups belongs to current logged-in user in the SharePoint site.

    Get current logged-in user group collection using $().SPServices.GetGroupCollectionFromUser:

    var userGroups = [];
        operation: "GetGroupCollectionFromUser",
        async: false,
        userLoginName: 'i:0#.f|membership|',
        completefunc: function (xData, Status) {
            $(xData.responseXML).find("Group").each(function () {

    In the above code block, I am passing the login name of particular user to get user group collection. We can also use $().SPServices.SPGetCurrentUser() to get the user group collection of current logged-in user.
