# Get Group Info, Deviceids and servicetags of all devices that belong to a specified list of groups

  # In the below code, we iterate over the specified list of groups and check if the sub_groups
  # field for that group in the ome_groupdevices_info data source has any entries. If it does, then that name is added
  # to a list. Then we use the to_set function to convert the list of names to a set to ensure that there is no 
  # duplication of names. Then that set is assigned to gd_names_with_non_zero_children.
