Download group sets?

I allowed students to self-assign to groups in group sets, but now I'd like to check whether students followed the rules about not duplicating partners in different group sets.  I can easily write a program to do the check, if I could get my hands on the data.  Is there any way to download a group set?

I gave up on Canvas ever properly supporting groups, and wrote my own code using the Canvas API to assign students to groups based on CSV files (the same CSV files I use to assign students to Zoom breakout rooms).

I guess Canvas is only interested in groups for faculty who (like me) have degrees in computer science.
