How to Load User Membership

To load a user's groups, you can right-click on the report name and choose Customize Report from the context menu. In the Report Wizard, navigate to the Membership page.

AD Reports membership settings

To activate the loading of membership for the selected report, simply check the Load User Membership checkbox.

AD Reports membership settings attributes

The available membership settings are:

Load all groups except primary group

When enabled, the "Load User Membership" option loads only the security and distribution groups that users of the selected report are direct members of. It excludes nested membership and does not include the primary groups for those users.

Load all security groups including nested group membership

When activated, the "Load User Membership" option loads only security groups for the users of the selected report, including both nested and primary groups. However, it excludes the loading of distribution groups.

Distinguished Names only

When selected, the "Load User Membership" option loads only the Distinguished Names of the groups for the users of the selected report.

Select Membership Attributes

Enabling this option will activate the Group Membership panel, allowing you to choose the desired columns/attributes to load for the membership.

Please be aware that selecting this option, which includes loading additional attributes for each group in the current report, will result in a slower performance compared to the "Load Distinguished Names Only" option. AD Reports will need to scan and load more attributes, thus impacting the speed of the process.

Display number of groups for each user

Enabling this option will show the number of groups for each user at the footer of the detailed grid.
