Is there any built-in way to map Oracle database roles to Microsoft Active Directory groups?

You want to manage your users, roles and user to role mappings in AD?

I think Enterprise User Security is what you want, see

Basically you'll need Oracle Enterprise Edition, and, after you've configured your database to use your directory (see ), you can create your users and roles as CREATE USER x IDENTIFIED GLOBALLY; CREATE ROLE y IDENTIFIED GLOBALLY;

You can assign privileges to role y, but you should manage user to role mappings in AD.
