You can use a business rule to pull custom attributes from your LDAP server into your form. You will have to modify your LDAP configuration and write a rule using _data.getParameter. See the docs section Working with Rules: LDAP Security Subject Information for an example of this type of rule. This rule is not yet supported in the Visual Rules Builder and thus still requires some JavaScript.
