Profile fields and profile categories

Showing the profile editor and the drag and drop functionality 

You can create and manage profile categories to group fields. Profile fields can be assigned to a profile category. Profile categories will show up as headings in the users' profiles, followed by the respective profile fields and their values. For a complete overview over all available field types please refer to CUP - Profile field types and special fields 2.0.

New in 2.0: With the release of the new contact area, the confluence.mail, the confluence.im and the confluence.phone fields are located in a prominent area on top of all the profile information. Additionally we offer a configurable field to be displayed under the full name in the profile. This can be any field from your already created categories. Simply drag and drop the desired field in the placeholder above the

Easy field order configuration

 

Just add fields to your profile categories as they come to your mind. If you want to change the order of these fields later on, you can always do that via drag&drop. You can even drag fields into another category if you wish so.

To reposition the categories themselves, click the "Layout" tab.

The order of the fields in this admin view will be reflected by the order in the actual user profile.

Synchronized Confluence profile fields

 

Confluence itself contains a couple of default profile fields. When you install Custom User Profile fields, all values existing in these default fields will be migrated to the respective Custom User Profile fields. As long as you have activated the Custom User Profiles addon, all profile field data is managed by it. Nevertheless all changes to migrated fields will be kept in sync with the default Confluence fields. So if you need to disable or uninstall the Custom User Profile, the Confluence profile fields will still be up to date.
