I am setting up some criteria based membership rules for security groups and there are going to be a lot of groups. I can predict the rules based on the name of the group and I have a list of group names. Is there a way that I can automate the criteria rules using scripts or SQL statements rather than setting this up by had for literally 1000's of groups?
You can automate creation of such number of groups by using powershell commands - for example based on a csv file. Check for example FIM.psm1 module from codeplex or any other from codeplex - PowerShell management of FIM is much easier with them.

Dominik is right, use powershell to achieve the results.
Here is a link to the script:
Thanks for the pointer guys. I will check it out.
In the scenario that I mention, the groups already exist within AD and are populated. Does anyone know how this script would behave in this scenario?
Ill check it out for myself if I get the chance before anyone can answer.
