    Why Linchpin User Profiles?

    People are the heart of your company and should be the heart of your Confluence, too. Linchpin User Profiles makes it easier for your employees to connect.

    Typically, the user directory is a highly popular Confluence feature. It is the part of Confluence that holds your wiki together.

    For your employees, Linchpin User Profiles has the following advantages:

    • Their profile lets others know what they’re good at, how to contact them and to whom they report (OrgCharts).
    • No duplicate data entry required - information from existing user directories can be synced via LDAP / Actice Directory or XML (e.g. SAP). You can also provide them with a self service, pushing user entries back to your LDAP.
    • Easily find colleagues through the Custom User Search macro.
    • Present your teams, peers, coworkers within Confluence pages with the Custom User List macro.

    This app is a part of Linchpin - Social Intranet, which offers your employees a fully personalized user experience.

    I really like this plugin to provide more information via the user profiles. The user-search, limited to a specified user-group, really helps to provide quick access to a user with certain skills. In the beginning we experienced some problems with the new design in v 2.0 as we are using a 3rd party theme, but the support was good and a fix was provided quite quickly.

    This is one of the best Plugins we implemented in our Confluence. Personalized content, custom profile information and as part of linchpin - great interaction with some other plugins! Support is also excellent.

    In our company we use the Plugin for all sides to make information about the author visible. If there are any questions you can attach the plugin within the author wich makes a direct connection between user and author. Great Plugin, great service from the producers.

    This is an amazing app which makes my life so much easier. * I can search for my colleagues with specific skills * I can create automated telephone lists of my team with the list macro * I can show my team who is responsible for a certain page or space with the handy profile macro * And of course the much improved profile view with custom fields. There i can check all i need to know about my colleagues and connect with them instantly through the connected Skype or mail. Exited to see whats coming next. Cheers

    Admin or personnel manager can not manually fill user profiles with initial data or change their info. It's not convenient.

    Hello Viacheslav,

    in the latest release we implemented the functionality to allow admins to assign users the permission to edit user profiles manually. Please take a look at the release and give us your feedback once again. In the meanwhile you can import this data from an LDAP or Active Directory connected to Linchpin User Profiles and Confluence. It is very unfortunate, that you gave us a one-star-review because of this missing feature. Maybe you'll change your mind after you tested it. Cheers, Tim and the //SEIBERT/MEDIA team

    Great Add-on to expand the Confluence user profiles. We like a lot that it can be synced via LDAP.

    Great addon for taking the Confluence User Profile to another level: We now have everything we need in our profiles even the possibility to initiate communication (chat, phone) and link up to our SAP based organisational charts. User information is filled via xml from the Identity Management System, other optional information is filled by each user.

    Great app for increasing the usefulness of Confluence. Makes it easy to display and search for additional information in user profiles. Especially useful are the search/directory macros which you can include directly into pages.

    Pricing FAQ

    How does server app pricing work?

    Server products and apps are hosted on your servers. This app is sold as a perpetual license, and the purchase price includes 12 months of maintenance (support and version updates).

    You can renew maintenance after 12 months at 50% of the current purchase price. You can upgrade the tier of your Atlassian product and app licenses at any time. Upgrade prices are calculated based on Atlassian's formula (view example).

    If app pricing changes after your initial purchase, there's a 60-day grandfathering period during which you can renew based on the old pricing.

    How do I determine my server pricing?

    Apps are billed based on the number of users in your Atlassian product. The app tier should match the licensed user tier of the Atlassian product. For example, if you have a Confluence license for 500 users, you should purchase the 500-user tier for apps. Even if fewer users want to use the app than your Atlassian product license, the two licenses should match exactly.

    Can I install this app in a Data Center product?

    This app does not have a a Data Center approved version. Only apps meeting a set of performance requirements for large, clustered environments are approved for Data Center.

    However, while server apps are built for single-server deployments, many customers successfully install them in Data Center products. If you're using a Data Center product, Atlassian recommends you contact the vendor to determine compatibility at scale.

    Learn more about Data Center approved apps

    What type of license do I need if I'm using this app in a Data Center product?

    Because this app does not have a Data Center approved version, you should purchase a Server license if you decide to install this app in a Data Center product.

    Learn more about Data Center licensing

    Do you offer academic, community, or open-source licenses for server apps?

    For server apps, academic licenses are available at a 50% discount if you have an academic license for your Atlassian product.

    Community and open-source licenses are available for server apps. Learn more about community and open source licenses.

    Can I extend my free trial?

    For server apps, you can extend your app trial up to 5 times - in other words, for up to six months. Extend your trial by generating a new evaluation license key from Atlassian Marketplace. Click Try it free and you'll be directed to generate a new license. Paste this license key into the app listing in UPM from your Atlassian product, and you're all set.

    How can I buy apps for my legacy Jira Server or Confluence Server license?

    If you own a legacy Jira Server Unlimited (100+ users) or Confluence Server Unlimited (2000+ users) license purchased in 2012 or earlier, legacy app pricing is no longer available. You have two options for app purchasing:

    • Purchase the app at the non-legacy Unlimited (10000+ users) tier.
    • Renew your Jira or Confluence license at a non-legacy tier, then purchase the app at the same tier.
