Automate Chatter Accounts with Active Directory

Greetings!!  

 

I am looking to anyone that has successfully created an automated system that allows for the creation of free chatter users into Salesforce from AD or Oracle via the API.

 

I have been searching the API documentation and was wondering if there was any way that I could do the following:

 

1) Create member groups via the API

2) Create users as chatter free users and assign them to these groups via the API

3) automatically create groups via the API 

4) deactivate users via the API?

 

 

If anyone has created anything automated I would like to start a quick discussion with you based upon what you may have done

 

I would appreciate any feedback on this very generic post

 

TIA!!
