Hi @alexspunkshell,

if you have LDAP authentication, you cannot create LDAP users in Splunk, only local Splunk users.

To create new LDAP users, you have to add them to one or more LDAP groups in Active Directory and automatically you'll have them in Splunk.

Ciao.

Just add correct group in AD side those user and then add that group mapping to splunk side if needed.
When you are using AD authentication, you don't / shouldn't do anything else than create those needed roles and map those in splunk side. After those have done new users just created when needed. Of course they much match to your ldap user and group binding rules also.
