Systematic studies of galaxy properties in groups are important in order to improve our understanding of the evolution of galaxies and of the physical phenomena occurring within this environment. <BR /> Aims: We have built a complete spectrophotometric sample of galaxies within X-ray detected, optically spectroscopically confirmed groups and clusters (G&C), covering a wide range of halo masses at z ≤ 0.6. <BR /> Methods: In the context of the XXL survey, we analyse a sample of 164 G&C in the XXL-North region (XXL-N), at z ≤ 0.6, with a wide range of virial masses (1.24 × 10<SUP>13</SUP> ≤ M<SUB>500,scal</SUB>(M<SUB>☉</SUB>) ≤ 6.63 × 10<SUP>14</SUP>) and X-ray luminosities ((2.27 × 10<SUP>41</SUP> ≤ L<SUB>500,scal</SUB><SUP>XXL</SUP>(erg s<SUP>-1</SUP>) ≤ 2.15 × 10<SUP>44</SUP>)). The G&C are X-ray selected and spectroscopically confirmed. We describe the membership assignment and the spectroscopic completeness analysis, and compute stellar masses. As a first scientific exploitation of the sample, we study the dependence of the galaxy stellar mass function (GSMF) on global environment. <BR /> Results: We present a spectrophotometric characterisation of the G&C and their galaxies. The final sample contains 132 G&C, 22 111 field galaxies and 2225 G&C galaxies with r-band magnitude <20. Of the G&C, 95% have at least three spectroscopic members, and 70% at least ten. The shape of the GSMF seems not to depend on environment (field versus G&C) or X-ray luminosity (used as a proxy for the virial mass of the system). These results are confirmed by the study of the correlation between mean stellar mass of G&C members and L<SUB>500,scal</SUB><SUP>XXL</SUP>. We release the spectrophotometric catalogue of galaxies with all the quantities computed in this work. <BR /> Conclusions: As a first homogeneous census of galaxies within X-ray spectroscopically confirmed G&C at these redshifts, this sample will allow environmental studies of the evolution of galaxy properties. <P />XXL-N spectrophotometric galaxy sample is only available at the CDS via anonymous ftp to <A href="http://cdsarc.u-strasbg.fr">http://cdsarc.u-strasbg.fr</A> (ftp://184.108.40.206) or via <A href="http://cdsarc.u-strasbg.fr/viz-bin/qcat?J/A+A/620/A7">http://cdsarc.u-strasbg.fr/viz-bin/qcat?J/A+A/620/A7</A>||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/20.500.12386/28282||URL:||https://www.aanda.org/articles/aa/abs/2018/12/aa30709-17/aa30709-17.html||ISSN:||0004-6361||DOI:||10.1051/0004-6361/201730709||Bibcode ADS:||2018A&A...620A...7G||Fulltext:||open|
