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

Firstly - thank you for your efforts. I know this a few years ago, but I've copied quite a few of your examples over the last couple of months! Quick question though - any idea why this doesn't work in the latest version of confluence? I'm using the latest version of the confluence sdk and I just cannot get info other than the name. It partly works in that I get the full name back, but I specifically want the IM back for the user. The getPropertyString comes back empty. Thanks in advance.

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:
