I only have an answer for the first question and it may not be the best way but it works for me.

1) Create a computed field with the formula @Userroles

2) Sign on to Notes or web using the username of the person to check.  It should display all the roles that the current user has.

there are a number of ways to do both these things I think you need to specify where , why and how you want this information ( In script , In formula etc ???)

As snocross says you can simply use @UserRoles to see what roles a users has and to see if a user is a member of a group you could use something like

@IsMember(@UserName;@DbLookup("";"<SERVERNAME>":"names.nsf";"Groups";"<GROUPNAME>";"Members"));

Where <ServerName> is the server that has the Domino Directory(NAB) on it and <GROUPNAME> is the name of the group

Thanks Simon. I ended up using the same method as per your suggestion below:

@IsMember(@UserName;@DbLookup("";"<SERVERNAME>":"names.nsf";"Groups";"<GROUPNAME>";"Members"));

If this question  has been answered you should either allocate some points (*GRIN *) or remove it from the EE forum

Note there is also the hidden view in the names.nsf called "$ServerAccess"  this tells you all the groups a person is a member of.

I'd suggest you to use @UserNamesList instead because it is a superset of @UserRoles such that it can be used for user roles and group members.
