Confluence Page History Without Icon for Changed By

For compliance purposes I am being asked to provide screenshots of Confluence page updates.  Unfortunately the Page History column "Changed By" simply shows my Atlassian icon.  Our auditors are not amused.

Is there a way to configure that field to show the user's name vs. an icon?

You are completely right, the overview doesn't show the name. I'm not sure whether you can configure this to show the names but I don't think so (happy to be proven wrong!).

As a workaround I've written a little script for you that you can execute in your browser's console. It isn't beautiful but it makes the names show up:


Here is the code:

$('table span[role="img"]').each(function() {
var $img = $(this);
var $container = $img.closest('div').parent();
var userName = $img.attr('aria-label');

Hope this makes your auditors happy for now! :)

Best regards,

Well, Sven, that is as clever as it gets.  Atlassian, please add this feature - hard to pass up when Sven's already written the code for you.
