GROUPS(1) User Commands GROUPS(1)

groups - print group membership of user

groups [user]...

The command groups prints on standard output the groups to which you or the optionally specified user belong. Each user belongs to a group specified in /etc/passwd and possibly to other groups as specified in /etc/group. Note that /etc/passwd specifies the numerical ID (gid) of the group. The groups command converts gid to the group name in the output.

The output takes the following form:

example% groups tester01 tester02
tester01 : staff
tester02 : staff
