You can try to use the nFeed Add-On ( to store the retrieved data inside a custom field wink

Unfortunately nFeed Add-on is not free. Is there way to do it using Kepler (using ldapUserRecord)?

Add a post-function that will update the custom field to a certain value after a validation (like a user is in group, or create your own script).

Yes, I agree we need to have Post function. I am looking for help in how to writing that post function. There are multiple connections available in "User Directories". How to select one from that? Any code samples on how to get manager and department from ldap?
