How do I find users that are not a member of any groups?

Somehow new users were registered but not added to the confluence-users group, so when they login to our Confluence they get an Access Denied error.  So I need to find all users in Confluence that are not a member of a group so I can add them to the confluence-users group.

Hi Richard,

You may find them with following SQL query:

select u.user_name, g.group_name from cwd_user u
join cwd_membership m on join cwd_group g on join cwd_directory d on
where (g.group_name != 'confluence-administrators' and g.group_name !='confluence-users')

Above query show users and groups names. However, it filters those users belong to confluence-administrators or confluence-users smile


Hope it helps.
