Set Site Group Owner in SharePoint using JSOM

The example in this topic show how to use JSOM to Set Site Group Owner in SharePoint
  • You can use Content Editor or Script Editor web part on your site, put Html and JSOM (Java Script Object Model) code and that's it. You can perform any action supported by JSOM APIs

How to execute JSOM code in SharePoint?

  • Note: This is just a sample, you can go ahead with your implementation.
  • Open your Site. Create a webpart page.
  • Put a Content Editor Web part and a Script Editor Web part on it.
  • Webpart page content editor and scipt editor
  • I have added below Html in Content Editor webpart. You can replace MainFunction with your actual method name.

    <button onclick="MainFunction();" type="button">Click me​</button>

  • And below references in Script Editor Webpart. You can keep jQuery reference as per your need. ScriptFile.js is a JavaScript file where you can keep below function i.e. your actual logic.

    <script src="" type="text/javascript"></script>

    <script type="text/javascript" src="/_layouts/15/sp.runtime.js"></script>

    <script type="text/javascript" src="/_layouts/15/sp.js"></script>

    <script src="https://MyServer/sites/SiteCollection/style library/js/ScriptFile.js"></script>

  • Once you are done with setting your page, click on the button and your method should get executed.

  • function SetSiteGroupOwner() {
  •     // You can optionally specify the Site URL here to get the context
  •     // If you don't specify the URL, the method will get the context of the current site
  •     // var clientContext = new SP.ClientContext("http://MyServer/sites/SiteCollection");
  •     clientContext = new SP.ClientContext();
  •     // Option 1: Set a User as an owner
  •     var ownerUser = clientContext.get_web().ensureUser("Logon Name");
  •     // Option 2: Set Group as an owner  
  •     var ownerGroup = clientContext.get_web().get_siteGroups().getByName("test Visitors");
  •     // Specify the group name over here. This is the group of which "owner" needs to set
  •     var oGroup = clientContext.get_web().get_siteGroups().getByName("New Group");
  •     // Set the owner property of the group
  •     // You can either specify "User" from Option 1 or "Group" from Option 2
  •     oGroup.set_owner(ownerGroup);
  •     // Update Group
  •     oGroup.update();
  •     // Execute the query to the server.
  •     clientContext.executeQueryAsync(onsuccess, onfailed);
  • }
  • function onsuccess() {
  •     console.log('Success');
  • }
  • function onfailed(sender, args) {
  •     console.log('Failed' + args.get_message() + '\n' + args.get_stackTrace());
  • }
