Profile-Editor

Custom landing spaces

Set up custom landing pages for users based on their user profiles. After logging in, users are redirected to a customized space, e.g., the team space for a certain location and department. 

Org Charts

You can now define which field of the type "User select (autocomplete)" holds the superior/subordinate connection of one user to another.

Scheduled profile update job

To update the LDAP data in the user profiles regularily a scheduled Confluence job ("Bulk profile update (LDAP sync)") will try to connect to the configured LDAP and update the user profiles. 

Known Issues

"Profile Updated" by Anonymous due to Confluence Synchronization

When Confluence synchronize against any external user management, all of the newly created and updated users will be displayed under the "All Updates" section of "Recently Updated" macro in Confluence dashboard.

Considering the amount of users Confluence will create or update from the synchronization, it would be better if it is excluded from "All Updates" section. Or at least, Confluence should provide the option to exclude these updates.

From Confluence 5.5 and later you can add the following argument in your JVM options to prevent updates to user information appearing in the dashboard https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONF-32081

Parentheses in filters are treated wrong

Since we have introduced complex filters for your custom landing pages, parentheses in filters are treated as logical characters. So your filter might be broken if you try to filter by attributes containing parentheses.
A workaround would be using the wildcard '?' instead of a parenthesis.
