Search --> Advanced Search --> Filter by User

Unfortunately, the cloud version has no Advanced search option, and no way to search by user who created the page (only by contributor, which is different)

Hi @seethamraju

You can do this using CQL and advanced search - to do this:

  1. Press the magnifying glass on the left-hand navigation bar
  2. Either press Enter/Return, or select "Advanced Search" at the bottom of this list to enter advanced
  3. In the search box put: creator = "Username here"

^ This should bring up all content created by a specific user. You can limit to pages by either:

  • Changing the standard filter on the right-hand side of Type to "Pages"
  • Adding type = page to the filter above. I find this can include space home pages though, so depends if you want to include these.

I've tried every variation of this search command that I can think of (creator=username, creator=Display Name, creator="Display Name", creator=@Display Name, creator=User GUID, creator:username, createdBy=username, etc.) any nothing returns any results. Any ideas what I'm doing wrong? Do I need permission to use this feature?

Hi @Michael Gibney

I'm finding some difficulty in this also in our Cloud instance - perhaps it differs slightly to what you can do in Server / DC.

I did find this free add-on which exposes CQL outside of the REST API on Cloud - this might make it simpler to use and search?


Hi @Stephen Wright _Elabor8_ - I got an admin to add that to our instance and I was able to get what I needed. Useful add-on, thanks
