I have created a customer group named “FriendsAndFamily” like this
I need to get that group by its name via code.
When I tried using this, i get null
var friendsAndFamilyGroup = groupService.Get<Group>("FriendsAndFamily");
The method accepts only string Id. But we cannot specify the id of the group by our own, instead we can specify name only.
How can i find customer group by name?

You could do it with a DataService, but that should not be used if it’s a flow for a customer on the site.
My approach to this would be to add ID based on the name with the help of a GroupCreated/GroupUpdated event. Something like this. (Sudo code)
eventBroker.Subscribe<GroupUpdated>(x => UpdateGroupId(x.SystemId));
var friendsAndFamilyGroup = groupService.Get<Group>(systemId).MakeWritableClone();
var name = friendsAndFamilyGroup.Fields.GetValue<string>("_name", culture);
friendsAndFamilyGroup.Id = name.Replace(" ", "");
