i recently checked the users on my confluence and was wondering:
ive got 6 user profils as administrator in the are users. The normal members are ok, just 1 account per user. But me as admin, having 6 user accounts in this user area, this is strange...
Ah, yes, that clears it up perfectly, thank you. There appears to be six identical accounts - same email, same avatar, same display name.
A few things I'd start looking at, mostly by descending into the actual accounts and checking all the details
Look at the account IDs - are they all the same as well? (For example, on one of my systems, I log in as "nic" or "nicb" - same email and display name, but different physical accounts)
If you can, look at where they are coming from - do the accounts all have the same "directory"? I ask because we sometimes see odd things happen when messing with test systems - a user with an internal account, an external crowd, an LDAP account, etc
Could you check the "groups" list? If you look just at "admins", does it show all 6 of you?
So the problem is simply that the user directory is showing your account 6 times. Everything else is fine?
Very much sounds like a bug in the user directory display. I've not seen it before, except when duplicating accounts in Crowd by accident (although that was for everyone, not just admins)
I think I'd raise this with Atlassian support. It's definitely broken, but I can't see quite where.
