Display Full Name From AD

Is there a way to display the full name listed in active directory in an email alert?

For example, if somebody had a username 'jsmith' and in their active directory profile their full name was 'John Smith'......is there a way to insert that into an email as jsmith (John Smith)?

LEM only normalizes what is stored on the native log files.

If full name does not show in original event, LEM has no way of interpreting it otherwise.

That feels like an easy feature to add since LEM can already use the connector to query AD for things like members of an OU.

LEM doesn't natively attempt to do anything like that, it just takes the data in the log file as it received it, processes it as is and saves it.  Doesn't allow you to modify the data or add info from other sources. I don't think any of those kind of features are on the road map at all right now.
