How do you view a list of Sharepoint user profiles. The only option in admin is to key in each profile you think may exist then search for it, it will then list that one profile it finds it based on your search term (sometimes). Is there a way to view a simple list of active Sharepoint user profiles and their permissions or group assignments.

    SharePoint doesn't store permissions at a single central port, making it difficult to report. There are third party tools that do this, however, such as Sharegate or SPDocKit, among others. I would suggest you look into SharePoint farm management tools like these.

    If you want to view a list of user profiles with permission, it is a bit hard due to the way SharePoint handles permission. As a workaround, it is possible to use PowerShell generating a csv file listing some user properties or permissions.

    Some examples you can have a check:
