Can you add more context to your query here.
Is this a kind of alternative you are trying for ldap auth in your Splunk OR you have some other purpose for them ?

If its the auth, I'd like to hear more from you about how are you planning it ? If not, it'd be like any other DB table that can be ingested and managed through DBX app

Hey
Yes, it is for ldap auth
I have groups that managed in ldap today
And i have to add some more groups that already managed in some db table
The admin of that prefer not to manage this list of groups in both db table and ldap
So i wondered if there is a way to take somehow the data from the table and add it to ldap so i will be able to manage splunk rules

Hi @sarit_s,

The answer to your question is : "Use LDAP".. don't rely on another DB especially if it's not managed, maintained and supervised centrally by your security.

So yes, recreate the groups from that database on your AD and just import them from there and map them as follows:
https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/7.3.0/Security/MapLDAPgroupstoSplunkroles

Cheers,
David
