In this short article we would like to show how to list any user groups in Linux Command Line.

Quick solution:

groups user_name

Note: by typing as second agrument user_name we indicate for what user we want to list assigned groups.

Practical example

Type following command:

groups john

Output:

john : john sudo cdrom

Explanation: we run command on Debian Linux, indicating as first argument john user, and he was assigned to john, sudo and cdrom groups.
