How to import organizational information into Draw.IO from Active Directory

Is there any way to be able to import organizational information from Active Directory into a Draw.IO org chart? I don't mind exporting this information out of AD, but so far I can only see certain file formats supported by Draw.IO. The XML format (if it expects a similar layout to the exported XML document) looks a bit convoluted to have to go from basic information to all the necessary cell stylings and geometries and properties (etc.).

Any ideas?

We don't currently support automatic import, but you're welcome to suggest it as a feature request. Is there a link to the formats that AD can export to somewhere?

Hi David, I have created a feature request as suggested.

Perhaps not ideal - extracting data from AD can be done with powershell. There is an example of going from AD to CSV here.

However, food-for-thought, Confluence has the ability for creating user directories with AD. It also can sync with a remote JIRA directory which might be synced with AD as well. Furthermore, there is a JIRA add-on that can gather more attributes from AD than the standard called "Active Directory Attributes Sync" here. I might be pushing it here though - but it's interesting to know that the functionality is there.

User's do have some limited profile information in Confluence that is org related. But I would hesitate using that information if users can change that data via a customer portal
