ShowUse the command line to assign a user to a site group

You can assign a user to a site group from the command line by using the userrole operation. The userrole operation takes the url, userlogin, role, and add or delete parameters. Use the following syntax to add a user to the Contributor site group:

stsadm.exe –o userrole –url http:// –userlogin  
–role contributor –add

 Note   This does not remove the user from any site groups to which he or she previously belonged.
