Syntax:

process.getgroups();

Parameters: This method does not accept any parameters.

Return: It returns an integer array specifying supplementary group IDs.

Note: This function will only work on POSIX platforms. Not available on windows or android platforms so will cause an error i.e. TypeError, getgroups is not a function.

Below examples illustrate the use of process.getgroups() method in Node.js:

Example 1:




// Allocating process module
const process = require('process');
  
// Printing  the supplementary group IDs.
console.log(process.getgroups());


Output:

Example 2:




// Allocating process module
const process = require('process');
  
// Checking whether the method exists or not
if (process.getgroups) {
  
    // Printing getgroups() values
  console.log("The supplementary group IDs :"
               + process.getgroups());
}
