I would like to expand the elements that can be searched for in the Confluence People Directory.
For example, it would be really useful to be able to search the Department field (eg. "Marketing") in the People Directory search box and have it return all people with that set in their Department field in their profile.
Any ideas how to do this?
AppFusions' Enterprise Directory and Org Chart allows you to expand based on the fields in your LDAP/AD (also can include images from AD).
Also you can sort by departments, names, etc. and place lookups or org charts also In independent Confluence pages (via additional macros).
When installed, the "Directory" is natively available in the page header options.
Here's a "glimpse" video :
Hi Ellen, I am trialling the appfusions plugin at the moment. It still requires the user to decide what element the are searching for. I would just like to be able to expand the general confluence People Directory search to encompass all elements from the user profiles. Hmm. Thanks, Alicia
Alicia, this search any field capability is now in the v4.0.0 version of Enterprise Directory and Org Chart for Atlassian Confluence add-on. Here's a screenshot. Thanks for the great feedback; you influenced this.
Hi, Yeah I have this installed so I am a bit familiar with it. The only thing though is I just don't think my users (mostly non-tech) will embrace the need to specify the element that they are searching for. For instance, somebody might want to search for everyone on the IT Service Desk... They will want to just input the word "Service" and have every profile that includes the word "Service" listed. Not: "Department:Service" or "Position:Service". So I want to know how to expand what the search of the People Directory is looking at... but not sure how to do it :-/
That's pretty good David, thanks for the excellent information. What I really want to know though is how to extend the results of that quick search box for the people directory to search more fields than just First Name, Last Name, and Username. Any ideas how to modify that directly?
