I'm having trouble with getting user's manager data in Sharepoint Javascript Model.

I'm using context.get_web().get_siteUserInfoList(); through SiteUserInfoList. What I got back is a bunch of info about a user (Title, JobTitle, Department, Office etc...) except who's that user manager.

What I'm missing? Or how can i get user's manager?

This blogpost describes how to get the current users manager by using the SPservices library.

The SPServices libary can be found on codeplex.

Note, this would require having SharePoint Server with a User Profile Service Application. – Mike Oryszak May 10 '13 at 13:18
Thanks, I gave it a shot but ultimately got it working through SP.UserProfiles.UserProfilePropertiesForUser – sebz May 13 '13 at 13:12
