How to Limit an Event Listener to a Specific User Group?


I'm sure this is relatively simple, but I've developed an event listener that sends an email when a user is added to a user group, however I want to limit the scope of this listener to only a specific group or set of groups.  What would be an example condition that would allow me to define that?

Oddly enough, after taking a break from assembling the solution I was working on, I realized the simplicity of the answer.

event.groupName == 'groupname'

This is all that was needed in the 'Configuration and Condition' field to limit the event listener to only users added to that group.

Hopefully if someone else runs into this issue it helps.

Hi @Kai Lamberson 

In your code you can fetch the group name of a user by something like this.


I hope it helps.


Hey Ravi,

Appreciate the quick response.  The case here is it's not associated with a specific user.  The listener is notifying us that a new user was added to a group using the GroupMembershipCreatedEvent.  I need to limit the scope to only send a notification if the group equals a specific user group(s).
