I suggest creating a Network rather than using ThingGroups for this process. With that you can simply get the parent of a specific Thing. This "parent" itself can be a simple generic Thing that represents the company and contains properties like the e-mail adress for the mentioned notifications.

Hi @ParthBhadiyadra 

 

You can use 'GetMembers' service to get Thing Name from Thing Group

Hi,

 

I Need thinggroup name 

Hi @ParthBhadiyadra 

 

I don't know if there is any direct way to get Thing Group from the Thing level 

 

As a workaround, you can use the 'GetWhereUsed' service to get a thing relationship with any Thing Group

You can further filter this InfoTable based on EntityType  to get ThingGroups details alone
