Export Users Groups
« on: September 10, 2019, 01:27:28 PM »
Is there a way to export the groups, and the users who have rights to those groups in a csv?
Trying to audit a system that the user has managed, trouble is he has a goodly few groups.
Not urgent, just trying to save myself time reading.

Thanks Paul

The basic info is in the accounts db.

Code: [Select]
db accounts show
Try grepping for groups eg

Code: [Select]
db accounts show |grep =group
Then you can look for members

Code: [Select]
db accounts getprop {group} Members
I guess you can probably script that and output to csv.

You can use the lazy admin tools contrib to export config as text files. You will get pipe separated files for users, groups, domains...

list group names and members from the config db:
Code: [Select]
for g in $(db accounts show |grep '=group' |sed 's/=group//'); do printf "$g\t$(db accounts getprop $g Members)\n"; done

list groups with 1 or more members (entries that don't end with a colon) from /etc/group:
Code: [Select]
grep -v :$ /etc/group

list ibay names and their groups:
Code: [Select]
for i in $(db accounts show |grep '=ibay' |sed 's/=ibay//'); do printf "$i\t$(db accounts getprop $i Group)\n"; done

Reading groups from /etc/groups you might get system groups in the way.
