getGroupBySlug( )

Gets a group by slug.

Description

The getGroupBySlug() function returns a Promise that resolves to a group whose slug matches the given slug. The slug is the end of a group's URL that refers to a specific group. For example, if a group's URL is 'https:/example.com/groups/{my-fitness-group}', the slug is 'my-fitness-group'. The slug is case-sensitive. It is generally based on the group name, but for secret groups it is an autogenerated string of characters, for example, 'https:/example.com/groups/{5D3yTX}'.

Note: For SECRET groups, only site admins, group admins, and group members can see a group and its content. However, if the suppressAuth option is set to true, all permissions are overwritten, and all site members (including non-group members) can see a group and its content.
