Splunk Enterprise Security

is there a dashboard for tracking active Directory group changes and local host group changes?

We want to be able to use Splunk as an auditing tool for our groups local and to Active Directory groups. If changes to the groups accur, we want to be able to see that in a Splunk dashboard.

hi Jarose,

Check out this link: Monitor Active Directory in Splunk

If link not visible: https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/8.0.3/Data/MonitorActiveDirectory

alternatively, you can also try monitoring a log file that logs the changes made in the database with splunk file monitor.

Yes you can. Splunk has a specific add on for AD. You can check it out. Here's its doc on how to configure and deploy it. I think it'll serve your purpose of bringing those logs into Splunk. Once logs are in, it's very easy to build the required dashboard.

Do you have any info on how to get the local server groups modifications? Not AD.

Example: administrators group on the local machines.
