Confluence 5.3 and the creator field on content table

Is there a way to retrieve the user name from the hash data that is in the creator field after the 5.3 update? After the update, several of our usage reporting sql scripts no longer show the user id, but instead the new hash data.


select contentid, title, creator, pageid, contenttype from content c
<th title="contentid">contentid</th><th title="title">title</th><th title="creator">creator</th><th title="pageid">pageid</th><th title="contenttype">contenttype</th>

You can run the SQL query below against your database, and it will return the username.

select username from user_mapping where user_key='8a8340fa42113ad50142113bb9623a35';

I appreciate the quick response. I hope this is the key I need, but I have a small issue with implementing the solution:

My user is in the following groups on our confluence server:

But when I attempt to update our usage statistics scripts with a reference to the user_mapping table in a SQL macro, I get the following:

Error rendering macro 'sql' : org.postgresql.util.PSQLException: ERROR: permission denied for relation user_mapping
