Adding Confluence users job title via Active Directory

Hi all,

Your help pls.

We're able to tag Confluence users by tagging their name preceded by '@' e.g. @Smith to then display "John Smith" for example. 

However is there a way to also populate that users job title e.g. @Smith = John Smith, Office Manager? Is this possible and does Confluence need to be linked to Active Directory or are there different solutions, maybe an Addon? 

Thanks in advance!

The following add-ons might be able to help you with this:

Let me know if you have any questions about that.
