User's Guide (v 1.1)


The User Profile Plugin enhances the functionality for Confluence user profiles. The user profiles can be centrally extended with additional elements. On top of that the plugin supports the synchronization of any attribute from external user repositories (e.g. Active Directory, LDAP) and the user profile by extending the LDAP integration functionality of Confluence. So the users are no longer required to update their personal data manually. Each profile element is searchable (additional ones too). Your benefit: The data of synchronized user profiles is always up to date and can be used to display business cards or to search for contacts.


Editing the user profile

The edit modes for user profiles have been extended so that both administrators as well as users are able to adjust the data for additional profile elements (1). Elements of profiles for external (LDAP) users that are synchronized are not editable (2).

With the User Profile plugin the data of all user profile elements is searchable. Hits will be displayed as link to the according user profile in the search result list. So users can be found by any information they provided in their profile.
