Extended ldap attributes from Active Directory?

We are running Confluence version 3.5 and it integrates with Active Directory nicely to manae users and groups for us. However, it only collects and displays the baisc data, i.e. name and email. How can it be exended to also include the other schema information such as phone number and position to be displayed in the user profile?

Any help appreciated.

If you're using Atlassian's Crowd product, there evidently is a way to extend it to support additional LDAP attributes.

Also, a 2007 post from Jamie Echlin's blog describes how to set up a custom field to retrieve values from an LDAP store. It may require updating for the version of JIRA you're using, but perhaps it's worth a look.

The User Profile Plugin enhances the functionality of Confluence user profiles by allowing you to extend user profiles with additional elements. It supports LDAP-synchronization for any attribute. See:

Isn't there any free plugin available for that?
