Hello @Nirmalkumar Shete .

As I understand, you need to create a SQL Query to list some specific data about your Confluence Spaces.

I would recommend you to start by looking into how to connect and run SQL queries on Microsoft SQL Server. Here we have their page on how to do so:

After that, we need to look into the Database Schema. You can take a look at Atlassian own Confluence Schema here:

Keep in mind that your database tool most likely has a feature that allows you to create your own visualization.

After that, you can get a taste on how to work with your database with some already well-established Knowledge bases for Confluence Server and how to extract data directly from your database. One such example is this:


Fetching and analyzing data from your database requires some prior knowledge of the database itself and also the tool and methods being used.


A few notes for anyone who needs or wants to dive deeper into SQL territory:

  1. Always be extremely careful with any query you want to send to your database
  2. If you are learning, do it in a testing environment. Never try new things on your production
  3. Understand the database relationship
  4. Check for similar queries
  5. If you plan on changing something on your database, create a backup before
  6. Updating the database requires Confluence to be down. Touching the database while Confluence runs will most likely break your instance

Some threads here in the community prove to be useful while learning:


I hope this guides you somewhere. Looking forward to your reply!

I was looking for query to be executed, thanks for pointers though. 

This query gives list of all spaces and associated users in every space


SELECT distinct s.SPACENAME, cu.lower_email_address
JOIN SPACEPERMISSIONS AS sp ON s.spaceid = sp.spaceid
LEFT JOIN user_mapping AS u ON sp.permusername = u.user_key
LEFT JOIN cwd_user AS c ON c.lower_user_name = u.lower_username
LEFT JOIN cwd_group AS cg ON sp.permgroupname = cg.group_name
LEFT JOIN cwd_membership AS cm ON = cm.parent_id
LEFT JOIN cwd_user AS cu ON = cm.child_user_id
WHERE cu.lower_email_address is not null
ORDER BY s.SPACENAME, cu.lower_email_address;
