I was having a requirement to get list of all users which have permissions on a sharePoint site and also on any specific list using PowerShell script. You can download script file from Technet Gallery.

Open Windows PowerShell Integrated Scripting Environment, and copy below script.

[System.Reflection.Assembly]::LoadWithPartialName(“Microsoft.SharePoint”) > $null
$SiteCollectionURL = “http://sp2013:1111″
$site = new-object Microsoft.SharePoint.SPSite($SiteCollectionURL)
$web = $site.openweb()
$siteUsers = $web.SiteUsers

foreach($user in $siteUsers)
Write-Host ” ————————————- ”
Write-Host “Site Collection URL:”, $SiteCollectionURL
if($user.IsSiteAdmin -eq $true)
Write-Host “ADMIN: “, $user.LoginName
Write-Host “USER: “, $user.LoginName
Write-Host ” ————————————- ”

The output of above script will be like this

users Powerscript

To fetch users listing for any specific list with user roles, you need to do below given modifications in listed code.

$list = $web.Lists[“Custom List”]
$siteCollUsers = $web.SiteUsers
foreach($MyUser in $siteCollUsers)
Write-Host ” ————————————- ”
Write-Host “Site Collection URL:”, $SiteCollectionURL
if($list.DoesUserHavePermissions([Microsoft.SharePoint.SPBasePermissions]::ViewListItems,$MyUser) -eq $true)
Write-Host “User : “, $MyUser.LoginName
Write-Host “Assigned Permissions : “, $list.GetUserEffectivePermissions($MyUser.LoginName)
Write-Host ” ————————————- ”

Above script will print the user login names and permissions assigned on SharePoint List.
