Hello :-)

I'm looking for help; I'm trying to find out how to get the termset ID using javascript/Angularjs.

Right now, my code is as follows; I don't want to have hardcoded the TermSet Ids.. do you know a way to get the ids?

I really appreciate any help you can provide.

My code below:

var termStore = taxonomySession.getDefaultSiteCollectionTermStore();
var SiteEnvironment = location.hostname;

if (SiteEnvironment == 'URL.sharepoint.com') {
var termSet;
if (termSetName == "ABC"){
termSet = termStore.getTermSet('XXXXXXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXXXXXX');
}
else if (termSetName == "DEF")
termSet = termStore.getTermSet('XXXXXXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXXXXXX');
else if (termSetName == "GHI")
termSet = termStore.getTermSet('XXXXXXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXXXXXX');
} else {
if (SiteEnvironment == 'URL.sharepoint.com') {
var termSet;
if (termSetName == "ABC"){
termSet = termStore.getTermSet('XXXXXXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXXXXXX');
}
else if (termSetName == "DEF"){
termSet = termStore.getTermSet('XXXXXXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXXXXXX');
}
else if (termSetName == "GHI"){
termSet = termStore.getTermSet('XXXXXXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXXXXXX');
}
}
}
