We have a Cisco 886 router, running IOS 15.3, which is configured with SNMP v3. The username is testAdmin.

Is there any command to identify, whether this user has read-only permission or read-write?


  • Please add router model and software version.

the command:

show snmp user

will tell you which group the user belongs to, and the command

show snmp group

will list the groups and the read or write views associated.

  • Thanks @JFL. is there any command exists to view a particular group only, instead of listing all groups?

  • AFAIK, no, the command show snmp group has no argument. See this doc for all SNMP commands.
