No valid splunk role found in local mapping? (AD FS, SAML, SSO)

Explorer

Splunk,

After completing Active Directory Federation Services (ADFS), our role mappings are not recognized. What are we overlooking?

Here’s the authentication.conf, the role mapping is declared at the bottom:

In AD FS, the relying part transformation rules are:

The NameId claim transformation:

c:[Type == "http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/ws/2005/05/identity/claims/name"]
 => issue(Type = "http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/ws/2005/05/identity/claims/nameidentifier", Issuer = c.Issuer, OriginalIssuer = c.OriginalIssuer, Value = c.Value, ValueType = c.ValueType, Properties["http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/ws/2005/05/identity/claimproperties/format"] = "urn:oasis:names:tc:SAML:2.0:nameid-format:transient");

The Role and realName claim:

c:[Type == "http://schemas.microsoft.com/ws/2008/06/identity/claims/windowsaccountname", Issuer == "AD AUTHORITY"]
=> issue(store = "Active Directory", types = ("http://schemas.microsoft.com/ws/2008/06/identity/claims/role", "realName"), query = ";tokenGroups,displayName;{0}", param = c.Value);

We found the issue:

  1. In Active Directory, the group splunkadmin needs to be a Global group type.
  2. Logoff the machine and log back so the user's profile could be refreshed with the new group enrollment.
