This is an experimental technology
Because this technology's specification has not stabilized, check the compatibility table for usage in various browsers. Also note that the syntax and behavior of an experimental technology is subject to change in future versions of browsers as the specification changes.

The getRegistration() method of the ServiceWorkerContainer interface gets a ServiceWorkerRegistration object whose scope URL matches the provided document URL.  The method returns a Promise that resolves to a ServiceWorkerRegistration or undefined.


ServiceWorkerContainer.getRegistration(scope).then(function(ServiceWorkerRegistration) { ... });


scope Optional
A unique identifier for a service worker registration — the scope URL of the registration object you want to return. This is usually a relative URL.

Return value

A Promise that resolves to a ServiceWorkerRegistration object, or undefined.


navigator.serviceWorker.getRegistration('/app').then(function(registration) {
  document.querySelector('#status').textContent = 'ServiceWorkerRegistration found.';
