Change the default set of user attributes

Hi,

how can I define a default set of user attributes?

I would like to have some additional fields like UserId, phone, company, project, for every new user who has to be added to Crowd.

We do not use any AD or LDAP directory. All users /groups are managed with Crowd.

Another question: the values for attributes like "passwordLastChanged" are a little bit confusing for me, eg 1532343964124. How can I change this to show date and time?

The Database is MS SQL.

Many thanks in advance...

Hi @DWedekind

You can add attributes through the 'Attributes' tab of each user in Crowd's console: https://confluence.atlassian.com/crowd/specifying-a-user-s-attributes-18579612.html

You can obviously do that through Crowd's REST API as well: https://docs.atlassian.com/atlassian-crowd/3.3.0/REST/#usermanagement/1/user-storeUserAttributes

My understanding is that you may want to define a default set once for all that would show up in each user creation form in Crowd. That feature is not available as of today.

Regarding your question about the value of the passwordLastChange attribute, that value is a unix epoch time. You can convert it to a more readable value using any programming / scripting language. For instance, in Groovy:

groovy -e "println new Date(Long.valueOf(args[0])).format('MM/dd/yyyy HH:mm:ss')" 1532343964124

returns
