Use 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://server_name/site_name userlogin DOMAIN_name\User_namerole contributor add

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