I use MEM and it is configured to allow access using LDAP credentials. When this is done the username is added to a local MEM table.

However, the user's real name is not added and if I want to see this I need to add it by hand.

This is clearly visible in ManageUsers.action where authentication says LDAP and Full Name is empty.

LDAP probably has the full name stored in some form or another so it would be good to provide as part of the LDAP configuration a mecanism to reference the user's Full Name so that I don't need to add this myself manually, or being lazy I don't add anything.

How to repeat:
See above.

Suggested fix:
Provide a way in GlobalSettings.action under LDAP Authentication to provide a way to retrieve the Full Name, so this can be retrieved when the information is obtained from LDAP.

This is a fully justified feature request.
