How do I search for a username in a page property field?

I have pages with page properties, where one field has multiple usernames. I would like to conduct a search on pages below a certain level of directories and search for usernames, so any usernames on the page or in this page property field show up in the search result. How do I search pages for usernames? I tried the @Name and "@name" but it did not bring up this page. Also, is there a way to conduct a search for a specific name that is in this page property over all pages below a certain level? Thanks.

Hey @Mark Petersen

You can search for specific account IDs in the Confluence search, which will return pages where the user was mentioned. So, for example, on the page itself or in the table:

It's not very convenient but it somewhat does the job. :) 

As you're already using page properties, you might also want to check out our app Orderly Databases for Confluence, which we like to describe as "Page Properties on Steroids". 😄

You could easily search for users in a single database (see my gif) and use the Confluence search to search all databases. A database or dynamic table would be similar to a page properties report here, just that it's not a read-only report. You can edit and add information inline anywhere, and the data is up-to-date automatically.

Let me know if you have additional questions. I'm happy to help. :)

Best, Max

Hi @Mark Petersen ,

mention (https://support.atlassian.com/confluence-cloud/docs/mention-a-person-or-team/) is not based on a specific path or page.
