Nintex group membership validation IsMemberOfGroup(Owner)

I have a workflow established for which I hoped to use the fn-IsMemberOfGroup(Owners) in line function to validate the current user was a member of the Owner group. I set up a variable, single line of text and no default value. I used the set variable action with Value equals "fn-IsMemberOfGroup(Owners)".  I then set a condition if validation ( the variable ) was True send an acceptance otherwise a rejection. My problem s that it always send a rejection. Any insight would be appreciated.

TIA

I should have mentioned that we are not using Nintex forms. All references I have found when trying to resolve this issue have referred to Nintex forms. Is it possible that it only works within the contruct of a Nintex form?

Is the owners group for the site actually called "Owners" or is it something like "Sharepoint Site Owners" and not resolving the correct group name resulting in false return

This can be done and is something I've done a while back using Nintex Workflow 2013 on SharePoint 2013. Considering thie method need the webservice function, it's bit complex. Hence you should refer to the link and it should work perfectly. http://wowsomuch.com/sharepoint/nintex-checking-if-a-user-is-a-member-of-a-sharepoint-group/ 

Let me know how it goes.

Cheers,
