Code.  The user directory is not a pluggable thing, you will need add-ons to create these extra fields and store them.  It also depends very heavily on what user directory you are using - LDAP, internal crowd, external crowd, etc all very different things.

We are using gmail accounts as we are on a POC stage,but going forward while using confluence plan is to add LDAP. But, right now want to explore this custom fields addition in user management.Is that possible?

Currently we are in POC stage with a licensed server 6.7.We are not using AD/LDAP now.We have users in Gmail and need to achieve this functionality.There are some paid one i have tried but need a free plugin to support. Is that possible?

Also please post how we can achieve this with LDAP

I think, you need an additional app for that. With Confluence out-of-the-box, you can't add a field to the user administration.

There are some apps on the marketplace:

But I didn't try any of these yet. 

Most of them looks paid versions.One is free but doesn't support 6.7 version.Already tried.

Give them a chance, 6.7 only came out this week.

I'm quite fond of the add-ons Niklas mentioned, if you do have some money, they're both very good.

i am ready to downgrade my server to 5th family versions.Can i achieve this with some free one that i found like below.

@debasish mishra This is a macro displaying user profiles on a Confluence Page. It won't enable you to customize user profiles.

Hi @debasish mishra,

You can add such details after creating a user, switch to the user in the user management and choose Edit Details.

You might want to try out Add-ons like User Profiles for Confluence or Custom User Profile. These enable you to add more fields to user profiles in confluence.

Already tried.This is paid one.Need a free custom one
