I have set of users with root access.I want to know list of users who are all created by currently logged in user.

From below structure if user1 login to system , how to list user's like user11,user12.who are all created by user1.


user1(Root Access)

  • user11(normal user created by User1)

  • user12(normal user created by User1)

    user2(Root Access)

  • user21(normal user created by User2)

  • user22(normal user created by User2)

  • If the users are actually root there wouldn't be any way, but if they are using sudo to add the users you would have a log of that. On Fedora/RH type systems it would be in /var/log/secure Jun 11, 2015 at 12:43

There is no record or log kept of which user was responsible for creating each user. Technically, all users are created by root anyway.

  • Thanks for your answer.In my case if I have multiple users with root access,then is there way to find user(rootaccess) who created particular user(Normal) ?.
