Populating User Information From AD Authentication

Is it possible to populate a user's Elasticsearch/Kibana fields when authenticated against AD? I'm guessing it's through the use of the xpack.security.authc.realms.activedirectory.metadata setting, but I'm not sure what the syntax is supposed to look like and the documentation isn't really clear on it either.

The goal would be for the user profile to populate the user's first and last name and email address. Currently, those fields are blank for my AD authenticated users.

No, it is not possible to resolve the user's full name or email address from the directory

That's too bad, considering we have a way of pulling those attributes into the user's metadata. I would imagine mapping that over to the appropriate fields in Kibana would be fairly simple.
