How to Change group and Unmask it to 027 in Linux?

I want to propose a change to the run script environment. This would change the effective group of the wsadmin account to prodview with a umask of 027 before running our services. In linux this can be accomplished by the following

# Original shell
newgrp prodview << NEWGRPTERM
# New shell
umask 027
# Now we can run the service and we should have a group of prodview and new files create should have group read.
{run service}
# Original shell
