Get ApplicationUser from userKey

Hello! I'm trying to parse a confluence page to get all user mentioned on it (with @username). 

But when i'm getting page body with getBodyAsString(), in places where user mentioned i see something like < ri:user ri:userkey="402881035cac154e015cac81a1b20001" /> . 

Is there any way to get ApplicationUser object without calling rest api?

you can use the regular expressions to extract the user key: 


 and get the confluence user with the code:

def userAccessor = ComponentLocator.getComponent(UserAccessor)
userAccessor.getUserByKey(new UserKey("402881035cac154e015cac81a1b20001"))
