gcloud projects get-iam-policy [PROJECT-ID] lists all users with their roles for specific project.

There are different filters and formatters available but I can't seem to find the right way to just filter only by specific user.

HINT: I reused the example code of DevOps - How to list all users with specific role in GCP

$ gcloud projects get-iam-policy MY_PROJECT

- members:
  - serviceAccount:12345678-compute@developer.gserviceaccount.com
  - user:alice@foobar.com
  role: roles/editor
- members:
  - serviceAccount:12345678-compute@developer.gserviceaccount.com
  role: roles/pubsub.serviceAgent
- members:
  - user:you@yourdomain.com
  - user:someoneelse@yourdomain.com
  role: roles/owner
version: 1

What's the --filter= expression that I need to use to list only items with the members - serviceAccount:12345678-compute@developer.gserviceaccount.com?

After a bit more googling, I found that post.


Here is the solution which works for me

gcloud projects get-iam-policy MY_PROJECT --format='table(bindings.role)' --filter="bindings.members:serviceAccount:12345678-compute@developer.gserviceaccount.com"
