Is there a macro to get a user profile attribute?

There are various attributes in the user profile, like: Location, Department, Phone. I'm wondering if anybody developed a macro to get a value of one of the attributes for a particular user. E.g. I need to put a phone number of vgleim user on a Confluence page.

If you're not afraid of using a user macro, you could do this to put the name and phone number of either a specific user or a group of users on a page:

## @param User:title=Username|type=username|desc=Select username to display
## @param Group:title=Group|type=string|desc=Enter group to display.
#set ( $Integer = 0 )
#set ( $userName = "" )
#set ( $userName = $paramUser )
#set ( $groupName = "" )
#set ( $groupName = $paramGroup )
#set ( $group = "" )
#set ( $user = "" )
#set ( $containerManagerClass = $content.class.forName('com.atlassian.spring.container.ContainerManager') )
#set ( $getInstanceMethod = $containerManagerClass.getDeclaredMethod('getInstance',null) )
#set ( $containerManager = $getInstanceMethod.invoke(null,null) )
#set ( $containerContext = $containerManager.containerContext )
#set ( $userDetailsManager = $containerContext.getComponent('userDetailsManager') )
#if ( $userName != "" )
  #if ( $Integer.parseInt($generalUtil.getBuildNumber()) > 4300 )
    #set ( $user = $userAccessor.getUserByName($userName) )
  #else
    #set ( $user = $userAccessor.getUser($userName) )
  #end
  #if ( $user != "" )
    #set ( $phone = $userDetailsManager.getStringProperty($user, "phone") )
    ##set ( $im = $userDetailsManager.getStringProperty($user, "im") )
    ##set ( $website = $userDetailsManager.getStringProperty($user, "website") )
    ##set ( $position = $userDetailsManager.getStringProperty($user, "position") )
    ##set ( $department = $userDetailsManager.getStringProperty($user, "department") )
    ##set ( $location = $userDetailsManager.getStringProperty($user, "location") )
    <p> #userLink($user) - $!phone </p>
  #else
    <p> User $userName not found. </p>
  #end
#elseif ( $groupName != "" )
  <p> Members in group ${groupName}: </p>
  #set ( $group = $userAccessor.getGroup($groupName) )
  #if ( $group != "" )
    #set ( $members = $userAccessor.getMemberNames($group) )
    #foreach ( $member in $members )
      #if ( $Integer.parseInt($generalUtil.getBuildNumber()) > 4300 )
        #set ( $user = $userAccessor.getUserByName($member) )
      #else
        #set ( $user = $userAccessor.getUser($member) )
      #end
      #set ( $phone = $userDetailsManager.getStringProperty($user, "phone") )
      ##set ( $im = $userDetailsManager.getStringProperty($user, "im") )
      ##set ( $website = $userDetailsManager.getStringProperty($user, "website") )
      ##set ( $position = $userDetailsManager.getStringProperty($user, "position") )
      ##set ( $department = $userDetailsManager.getStringProperty($user, "department") )
      ##set ( $location = $userDetailsManager.getStringProperty($user, "location") )
      <p> #userLink($user) - $!phone </p>
    #end
  #else
    <p> Group $groupName not found. </p>
  #end
#end

One of the options is to install Communardo User Profile plugin. It can synchronize user attributes from AD and provides a few profile macros you can use on your pages:
