Key Features

  • Let your Confluence users create a meaningful profile and build your expert network and people directory. This way your employees can get to know each other effortlessly and work together more efficiently.

  • Upload and crop your avatar and profile picture and limit the size of user profile pictures to take the load off your server.

  • Display org charts in the respective profile.

  • Fill in a user's profile either from a user directory or by the user themselves in Confluence. So you can have directory users and "Confluence-only" users at the same time. When an LDAP attribute is configured for a profile field and the user exists in the directory, the user is not allowed to edit the profile field within Confluence.

  • Add a separate user directory to complete your user profiles. Your Confluence user directory will not be affected, only LUP will pull from it.

  • Use the extended customizable user search, complete with customizable and filterable presentation of the search results. Allows you to easily build customized searches: Expert Finder, Specific Contact Search, and many more.

  • Mark your favorite contacts for quick access to all important contact details and group your favorite contacts.

  • Link profile categories to Confluence user groups to ensure that every user sees only relevant categories.

  • Import user data via XML, and you can also import your users' data via an XML file on your Confluence server.

  • Configure text fields and the profile picture to be written back into the user directory.

  • Direct links to your XMPP-based messenger.

  • Skype For Business presence status: Let your users know if their contacts are reachable via Skype. Please note: There are technical prerequisites you should check.

Technical Information

In Linchpin User Profiles 2.10 we improved the search backend and switched completely to a CQL based search. To benefit from this immediately after the upgrade to 2.10 it is necessary to rebuild the index completely. You can trigger this by yourself, please consider that this may take some time.
Alternatively you can skip that since the index will progressively update itself. Then the full featured Linchpin User Profiles search will improve progressively as well.


Please be aware that downgrading from this version may result in unwanted side effects. Only experienced administrators should consider this step.
