Sync Active Directory Fields

Hi, i'm working on a confluence instance for over 2000 users and we are trying to sync up the active directory users information with confluence. We were able to sync all users but it only sync 4 fields, Username, FirstName, LastName and email. We would like to be able to sync other information like, Phone, IM, Website, Position, Departmen, Location, etc...

Is there away to sync more fields?

Thanks in advance!

Not natively, the list of fields for confluence profiles is pretty much hard-coded at the moment. works really well in my experience, although I think there are a couple of others that will do the same job for you.

AppFusions' Enterprise Directory and Org Chart reads and displays some or all of your AD (or other LDAP flavor) fields, including profile images. It also supports some additional views for lookups and org charts. 

It's a little beyond what you are asking for - but maybe interesting nonetheless. We find that larger organizations (with lots of users - go figure!) are the ones that like this integration the most.

If you'd like to try it, email
