Powershell script for SharePoint to list all users in all groups

I needed a quick result without using any thirdparty applications to find all users in all groups of a SharePoint web application.

I found a great powershell script from this site that did just the trick for SharePoint 2007 and SharePoint 2010


For both SharePoint 2007 or 2010 in any PowerShell:

$site = New-Object Microsoft.SharePoint.SPSite("http://yourservername/sites/yoursitecollection ")
$groups = $site.RootWeb.sitegroups
foreach ($grp in $groups) {"Group: " + $grp.name; foreach ($user in $grp.users) {"  User: " + $user.name} }

or for SharePoint 2010 in the SharePoint 2010 Management Shell:

<pre>$site = Get-SPSite http://yourservername/sites/yoursitecollection
$groups = $site.RootWeb.sitegroups
foreach ($grp in $groups) {"Group: " + $grp.name; foreach ($user in $grp.users) {"  User: " + $user.name} }

Simply change the web application to point to your site and save the script to a ps1 file. To get the script to dump the info to a file do the following.

script.ps1 > File.txt

That should dump all the permissions to file.txt in the directory you are running script.ps1 from.

    This script for 2010 will get the info from the root site collection. Is it possible to get them for each subsite as well?
