To get variable names referencing an object in mission namespace:
KK_fnc_objectVarNames = { private "_names"; _names = []; { if (missionNamespace getVariable _x isEqualTo _this) then { _names pushBack _x; }; } forEach allVariables missionNamespace; _names }; // Example myGroup = group player; aGroup = group player; hint str (group player call KK_fnc_objectVarNames); // ["agroup", "mygroup"]
