How to map user properties like phone, IM and website to an active directory?

Is there any easy way to map user properties to our AD an edit them from confluence? We're using Confluence 4.2. I went through the docs and it seems it was possible with 3.5 with atlassian-user.xml which seems to be gone in 4.2.

Thank you so much!

Hi there,

Sorry to inform you that Confluence does not have the feature to retrieve the mentioned information from LDAP server yet. We do have an improvement request regarding this issue:

We highly recommend you to vote on it to raise the popularity of the mentioned request, watch it so that you would be updated on it and please feel free to address your concern directly into it. As I believe this would be a great addition for Confluence I have personally add my vote into it.

If you don't mind to go to a third party plugin solution you might want to consider using "User Profile" plugin which would help you achieve your purpose.

Hope it helps.

Cheers,
