      Atlassian Update: October 9, 2018

      Hi all,

      Thank you for your continued feedback and support on this issue.

      We are currently doing some research to better understand how we can solve this problem and how organisations use people directories. We'd love to hear from you if you are able to provide any more context on this topic. Your feedback will go a long way to helping shape the roadmap and solutions we build.

      If you're interested, please email smansour@atlassian.com and I'll schedule a quick chat with you.

      Regards,
      Sherif Mansour
      Product Manager, Atlassian

      User records in LDAP typically have a lot of information associated with them:

      • telephone numbers
      • addresses
      • pictures

      It would be good if Confluence could use this information for:

      • displaying in user profile page
      • displaying in people directory (2.3+)

      I believe this requires a few changes to Atlassian User to implement.
