Perform a login in Splunk or perform a login on a Windows machine?

If Splunk:

  • Use the internal logs to monitor when a login success happens

    index=_internal sourcetype=splunk_web_service user=* action="login" status="success"

  • Find if the user belongs to those groups via the ldap commands

If Windows:

  • Collect Security event logs from required hosts
  • Run a search in Splunk using the right Event Code for your Windows domain level. Also keep in mind logons can be interactive, remote, local, batch, etc so you need to use the Logon Type field too.
  • Once you have the user, correlate with AD in the same way as above via the ldap commands in order to find out the user group membership

Hope that helps.

Thanks,
J
