This relates to v5.2.3 of the Download version of Confluence.
I use the SQL Plugin with the SQL macro to query information directly out of our Confluence instance. Somewhere in a recent upgrade (5.0.x to 5.1.x or 5.1.x to 5.2.x) the format of usernames on tables such as CONTENT.LASTMODIFIER or NOTIFICATIONS.USERNAME have changed from a plaintext version to an 32 character hexadecimal hash. Previously these plaintext versions were identical to CWD_USER.USER_NAME.
I want to be able to profile information such as,
I can't seem to do it unless I can reverse this hash, or join it to a table that also has this hash which identifies the plaintext username.
I suspect they are hashing the user id somehow because the hexidecimal values seem to be sort of incremental (the first 24 characters of the hashes I've looked at seem to be the same). I'd also just like to point out that since usernames are allowed to be up to 256 alphanumeric characters in length, 32 hexidecimal character hash of such usernames would allow for collisions, so I very much doubt it's a hash of the username unless it's glitched.
