Automate group addition to SEPM

This issue has been solved. See solution.

Does anyone know a way to automate or script adding groups into the SEP?  I need to ad 400+ sub-groups under 1 group in the SEPM.  I'd love to find a way to automate this instead of having to click Add Group 400+ times.

I can only add that there is no way to do this via the SEPM.

Thank you for posting in Symantec community.

I would be glad to answer your query.

There is no way to import groups into the SEPM. You will have to manually create them.

Only when SEPM is synchronize with Active directory then only AD group structure can reflect into the SEPM
