Listing the SharePoint groups where a user account is a member of

Posted in Sharepoint by Abhishek Bhowmick on November 25, 2010

Have you ever thought of searching for a user account in an enormous list of SharePoint permission groups?  Nightmare isn’t it?

I bumped into this amazing utility which lists the SharePoint groups for a user account in a SharePoint site collection.  Thanks to the black knight!

Run it off a command line from any client computer and you do not absolutely need to be on a server.


ListUsersGroups <site-url> <username>
Site-url: Url of site collection including protocol (example http://localhost)
username: Full username including domain (example MOSSWORK\user)

You may download it off my blog too at https://prequest01.files.wordpress.com/2010/11/listusersgroups-exe.jpg (Right-click and save as.  Don’t forget to rename to .exe – Sorry folks, server didn’t allow the extension upload)
