WoW API < UnitIsGroupLeader

Returns true if the unit is leader party or raid group, false otherwise.

isTrue = UnitIsGroupLeader("unit"[, groupType])

Arguments Edit

(unitId) Unit that should be checked
groupType (optional)
(partyCategoryType) The type of group.
  • LE_PARTY_CATEGORY_HOME - get the count for a local or manual group. (default)
  • LE_PARTY_CATEGORY_INSTANCE - get the count for a player's automatic group. (default in an instance)

Returns Edit

(boolean) true or false

Examples Edit


local targetIsLeader = UnitIsGroupLeader("target")


targetIsLeader == true  - If your target is the leader of their group
targetIsLeader == false - If your target is not the leader of their group

Notes Edit

  • Seems to work on players outside of their group.
  • As of 5.0.4, passing an unknown unitName, will cause UnitIsGroupLeader to return the name, which may be a bug.
