Good day,

I have a question with getting user profile data from AD by JavaScript for SharePoint Display Form. I can get user Department by script:

<SharePoint:ScriptLink ID="ScriptLink2" name="SP.UserProfiles.js" runat="server"
    ondemand="false" localizable="false" loadafterui="true" />
var scriptbase = _spPageContextInfo.webAbsoluteUrl + "/_layouts/15/";
    SP.SOD.executeFunc('sp.js', 'SP.ClientContext', function () {
       $.getScript(scriptbase + "SP.UserProfiles.js", getUserProperties);
function getUserProperties() {
        var context = new SP.ClientContext.get_current();
        var peopleManager = new SP.UserProfiles.PeopleManager(context);
        personProperties = peopleManager.getMyProperties();
        context.executeQueryAsync(onRequestSuccess, onRequestFail);

function onRequestSuccess() {
function onRequestFail(sender, args) {

I would like to get user organization name (or Employer name) from AD. But persDepartment=personProperties.get_userProfileProperties()[Organization]; didn’t help.

Could you tell me how I can get Organization name?

Would be grateful for info.


You are getting the properties from the User Profile Service Application, not directly from Active Directory.

In order to retrieve a property you will first have to make sure that it is synchronized. Organization is not one of the standard properties that is synced I believe.

  • Thanks for reply. How can I make Organization to sync up? – Anonymous Apr 2 at 14:23

    Check the official documentation. There is a step-by-step guide. Point 16 and 17 tells you how to set up the sync once you have created the property. – Rune Sperre Apr 3 at 7:40
  • I im adding New Organization property. Point 16. In the Property Mapping for Synchronization section I see "No elements for displaying in this view". Point 17 - I can't specify the source data connection, attribute, and synchronization direction for the mapping because I don't see any attributes... – Anonymous Apr 6 at 5:44
