How to extract fields from /services/authentication/current-context?

Cbr1sg
Path Finder

Hello all,
The command
| rest /services/authentication/current-context
will return some fields like username, email, realname, etc..
I want to get other fields on LDAP like Telephone Number, SIP address, etc..
Is it possible?
Thanks

You'll need a secondary data source, e.g. ldapsearch, to retrieve that information, use the username returned by current-context as a filter.

SA-ldapsearch runs on linux splunk servers.

If you don't have AD, consider https://splunkbase.splunk.com/app/3872/

Well, you can always define regular expressions to fetch needed field value, are you looking to extract ALL fields automatically? There is limitations on that

I think you might have misunderstood my question, and sorry as I wasn't clear enough.

I want to get additional information which does NOT exist in current-context,
When the user authenticates using LDAP username/password, Splunk does the ldap lookup and returns some of standard fields like username, email, realname, etc..
Besides those fields, i want to get something else which is missing, for example Phone and SipAddress
