sss_groupshow [ options ] GROUP


sss_groupshow displays information about a group identified by its name GROUP. The information includes the group ID number, members of the group and the parent group.



Also print indirect group members in a tree-like hierarchy. Note that this also affects printing parent groups - without R, only the direct parent will be printed.

In order to function correctly, a domain with id_provider=local must be created and the SSSD must be running.

The administrator might want to use the SSSD local users instead of traditional UNIX users in cases where the group nesting (see sss_groupadd(8)) is needed. The local users are also useful for testing and development of the SSSD without having to deploy a full remote server. The sss_user* and sss_group* tools use a local LDB storage to store users and groups.
