How do you query Crowd for list of groups and their members?

I'm new to Crowd so I don't even know how to connect to the DB to run the queries?  Does this have to be done on the server or is there a remote connector?  If someone could give me a simple step by step on how to connect, I can bang out the query I believe from this information.  I just don't know how to go about connecting to the DB from a Windows box. Please pardon my ignorance.

The Crowd CLI has been discontinued, I assume I could have done it from there before.  We are on 2.8

If you are trying to connect to the database directly, you need access to the database server and whatever credentials you can get that will let you run those queries. 

A better alternative would be to use the REST apis – https://developer.atlassian.com/display/CROWDDEV/Crowd+REST+APIs

Thank you Steven.  I was able to use the following query using the rest APIs and obtained a list of users in each group.

http://mycrowdserver:8095/crowd/rest/usermanagement/latest/group/membership

It returned the group and username which was very helpful.  Is there a way to obtain all of the user information, not just the username with the query?  I could not seem to find a way to do so here:

Sorry, what user information specifically?

The fields from the View User>Details tab in the crowd console.

Username, Directory, Email address, Active or Not, First Name, Last Name.

 

Thanks again Steven.

Super late but i use this:

 

/crowd/rest/usermanagement/1/group/user/direct?groupname=$group&expand=user

gives me all the user details for members of the group in the $group variable

Hi @Jeffrey Engleman

This command cannot output data via json?

User in the header:

[{"key":"Accept","value":"application/json","description":""}]
