From the Confluence java API, how do I determine the user's directory?

I'm writing a REST API call to determine the number of active Confluence users. To do this, I need to differentiate LDAP users from those in the internal directory. How would I do that?

I have not been able to find or hack a REST API call that will return the user directory the user belongs to. I tried the . dot notation and expand query parameter mentioned in Confluence REST API Documentation but was not able to retrieve user directories or a list of more than one user.

If you have access to the Confluence database you may get a list of active users and their directories using the queries on this page:

The results look like:

If you find a way to get the information you seek with REST, please post it here to help the next person who needs a list like this.

Thanks, Ann. I couldn't find a way either so I'm looking at writing my own. I'm wondering how to find the directory information from the Java API.
