How to view the groups a user is a member of in Linux
In a previous Linux article I wrote about how to add a user to a group in Linux and in this short article I will show you how to view which groups a Linux user is a member of.
View the groups a Linux user is a member of
To view the groups that a Linux user is a member of, the command you need to use is the groups command. An example of this is below, the example would show use which groups the user1 user is a member off
The above command will produce an output along the lines of the following.
user1 : group1 group2
And that’s really all there is to it, In the next article I will show you how to remove a user from a group in Linux.
