LDAP Attributes Access

I’ve seen a couple of threads (one that actually asked about the LDAP attribute I’m needing to extract) concerning accessing LDAP User Data. I’m wondering if any more capabilities have been added to the system.user.getUser function in later version to allow for extracting other data. The attribute I need to extract from the Active Directory User is the employee-ID attribute.

In the PyUser Class I see a lot of methods but nothing that screams “I can get the employee-ID data for you!”

Can this attribute’s data be gotten from this standard function?
If not, what is the suggested Python Library to import and use for this?
The Ignition version being used is 8.0.16.

Thanks.
