SYNOPSIS

lslogins [options] [-s|-u[=UID]] [-g GROUPS] [-l LOGINS]

DESCRIPTION

Examine the wtmp and btmp logs, /etc/shadow (if necessary) and /etc/passwd and output the desired data.

Mandatory arguments to long options are mandatory for short options too.

The default action is to list info about all the users in the system.

OPTIONS

Display info about existing users.
-a, --acc-expiration
  Display data about the date of last password change and the account expiration date (see shadow(5) for more info). (Requires root priviliges.)
-e, --export
  Output data in the format of NAME=VALUE.
-f, --failed
  Display data about the users’ last failed login attempts.
-G, --groups-info
  Show information about groups.
-g, --groups=GROUPS
  Only show data of users belonging to GROUPS. More than one group may be specified; the list has to be comma-separated.
-l, --logins=LOGINS
  Only show data of users with a login specified in LOGINS. More than one login may be specified; the list has to be comma-separated.
-L, --last Display data containing information about the users’ last login sessions.
-m, --supp-groups
  Show supplementary groups.
--notruncate
  Don’t truncate output.
-o , --output list
  Specify which output columns to print. Use --help to get a list of all supported columns.
-p , --pwd Display information related to login by password (see also -afR).
-r, --raw Raw output (no columnation).
-s, --system-accs
  Show system accounts. These are by the default all accounts with UID below 1000 (non-inclusive), with the exception of either nobody or nfsnobody (UID 65534). The UID treshold can also be specified explicitly (necessary for some distributions that allocate UIDs starting from 100, 500 - or an entirely different value - rather than 1000).
--time-format type
  Display dates in short, full or iso format. The default is short, this time format is designed to be space efficient and human readable.
-u, --user-accs
  Show user accounts. These are by the default all accounts with UID above 1000 (inclusive), with the exception of either nobody or nfsnobody (UID 65534). The UID treshold can also be specified explicitly (necessary for some distributions that allocate UIDs starting from 100, 500 - or an entirely different value - rather than 1000).
-Z, --context
  Display the users’ security context.
--wtmp-file path
  Alternate path for wtmp.
--btmp-file path
  Alternate path for btmp.
-h, --help Display help information and exit.
-V, --version
  Display version information and exit.

NOTES

The default UID tresholds are read from /etc/login.defs.

EXIT STATUS

0 if OK,
1 if incorrect arguments specified,
2 if a serious error occurs (e.g. a corrupt log).
