Search all groups using findGroups in GroupPickerSearchService using Groovy Edited

I'm attempting to search all groups (not the groups for a specific user) via a groovy script in the Script Runner console using the following method: 

List<com.atlassian.crowd.embedded.api.Group> findGroups(String query)

My script:


def searchString = "members"
def groupList = GroupPickerSearchServiceImpl.findGroups(searchString)

fails suggesting a string be supplied..


No signature of method: static is applicable for argument types: (java.lang.String) values: [members] Possible solutions: findGroups(java.lang.String)


What am I doing wrong? Thanks for any help!

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.crowd.embedded.api.Group def groupSearch = ComponentAccessor.getComponent(GroupPickerSearchService)
def groupList = groupSearch.findGroups("a search string")

//print group names to log
for (Group group in groupList){
log.error group.getName().toString()

Sorted - need to import via ComponentAccessor first
