Ldap distribution list as group?

I understand Discourse has a concept of group and there are ldap plugin out there. Is there a way to use existing ldap distribution lists as groups without recreating them in Discourse?

You would need to build a plugin or some sort of script using discourse api to synchronize stuff.

I wanted to check if this functionality has been added by default or do we still need to build a plugin to get this done?

Still need a plugin to sync your LDAP distribution lists with Discourse groups.
