The miniOrange user sync app now provides support for LDAP Sync. Follow the instructions to
configure the LDAP directory. By configuring the LDAP directory, you can synchronize all
attributes from your LDAP
directory and choose the attributes you wish to include in Jira.
Once you have successfully configured the LDAP directory in Jira/Confluence, you can test the specific user’s
attributes by using the Test Sync button.
To test your configuration, enter an username(sAMAccountName) from your directory's user data and click on the
Search User button. You will then be able to view the details of the searched user.
Step 4: User Sync Settings
Select the User Sync Settings tab from the left sidebar. Here you can configure different
settings about user creation and updation.
You can select the directory, enable or disable user import, update process.
The user can be automatically enabled or disabled here based on IDP configuration.

this section you can map your jira attributes to the attributes coming from IDP. By default, username attribute
corresponds to the username/userPrincipalName attribute, email corresponds to the email/mail attribute, and
displayName corresponds to the full name attribute. However, if you want to map these jira attributes with other
attributes coming from IDP, you can use this feature to change the attribute mapping configurations.
User sync also supports mapping of custom attributes. Here, you can create custom attributes
assign values to them from the IDP (Identity Provider). Select the desired attributes from the IDP that you want
to display in Jira and provide a name for the custom attributes to be shown in Jira.
Custom fields will be displayed in the user profile section as shown below
