How to get email id from LDAP

Contributor

in the following page, i can see list of users in splunk.
/manager/search/authentication/users

I see a field called Email address and we use LDAP authentication. I would like to configure splunk so that i can see user's email id auto populated from AD

my setting in authentication.conf
[authentication]
authSettings = AD,AD1
authType = LDAP

This question has been around since at least May 2010 v4.1. http://splunk-base.splunk.com/answers/2138/ldap-authenticated-users-do-not-pick-up-mail-attribute-fr...

I'm on 5.0.3 and it looks like email addresses still can't be automatically pulled from AD and they can't even be added manually!

It should be pretty simple to add this feature.

This is a bit of a showstopper - how are we supposed to populate email addresses ??

A stop gap solution would be to pull from your AD or LDAP a .csv file containing username and email address. This can be uploaded as a lookup table and used in searches for internal and audit indexes. It doesn't put the emails where you want them but you'll have a way of accessing them for reporting or alerting.

We just upgraded to v6.2.1 and the Email Addresses are now being populated by LDAP.
