How to find all groups from JIRA

Hi

I am writing a function to remove a user from all groups of my Jira instance. I'm using the JIRA Rest api version 6.0.4 and while it does have functionality to get a group by it's name, I need to be able to find all groups and I can't see how to do this.

Is there a way to do this using this api?

the following way you can get all groups for specific user(i used this function in javascript)

function getGroups(user)
{
var groups;
     AJS.$.ajax({
        url: "/rest/api/2/user?username="+user+"&expand=groups",
        type: 'get',
        dataType: 'json',
        async: false,
        success: function(data) {
            groups = data.groups.items;
        }
     });
     return groups;
}

Hi ,

Thanks for the code.But it returns the groups as objects.In alert,i get only [object,object]. Is there any way that i can use to get the name of the groups?i have used the same code in my script.

thanks
