Can I scrape user details from Active Directory (address, department, emails) to populate a staff directory?

Yes. We use csvde to extract AD information to a csv file. Then import csv into a database table using a database copy from csv function (postgresql copy function works nicely). This is done every 6 hours and makes the results available for query in Confluence for things like a people finder page using the run and sql macros. Also have a custom user-info user macro that can be placed anywhere like home page of personal spaces.

You could also use our User Profile Plugin ;-) It can synchronize those data from your Active Directory into Confluence and display them as part of the standard user profile.
