How do I view a users group membership?

I can look in groups and see the members but I need to see what a user is a member of.

    The best way I have found to accomplish this seemingly simple feat is to go to the Groups view (seeing all of the Groups) and then use the built-in Search function from Domino.  Make sure to use the full search that will search inside of Groups and not the easy one that just looks at the Group name.  The one you need is the magnifying glass on the toolbar.

    Click this, type the user name, and presto!  You should see your desired user's name listed inside of each Group that he/she is a member of.

    I hope this is what you're looking for.  Not too elegent but effective nonetheless.

    If I need to know, I usually consult the (hidden) view "($ServerAccess)" in the Organisation's NAB. You know the trick of pressing shift + control and clicking View > GoTo?

    If my applications need to check, I use @UserNamesList. It'll return:
    - Common name
    - All hierarchical names (fully distinguished) that include the user name; for example, CN=My Name/OU=My Org Unit/O=My Org, plus */OU=My Org Unit/O=My Org, */O=My Org, and *
    - Any roles associated with the user in the ACL
    And, to answer your question:
    - All groups to which the user belongs (only if the database is on a server)
