not necessarily. If you navigate to the administration section and click on user management, you'll be able to find a list of all your users. You generally will see something like first name last name and then the users email. So the user name could be first name last name, or something different that is chosen at the time the user is created or edited later .

In Confluence Cloud, your username for login purposes is typically your email address. This is because Atlassian Cloud products use your email as the primary identifier. However, for API or integration purposes, you might need your Account ID, which is different from your email address.

To find your Account ID:

Click on your avatar in the Confluence Cloud interface (bottom left or top right, depending on layout).
Navigate to "Account settings" or "Profile and visibility."
Your Account ID should be visible there.


For most actions within Confluence Cloud, including logging in and user settings, your email address acts as your username. For specific technical scenarios requiring a unique identifier, use your Account ID.

That's not strictly true.

Atlassian Cloud products use Atlassian accounts for access, not your email address.

You use your email address to log into your Atlassian account, and that lets you into Cloud.

If Cloud used email addresses, then you would not be able to change your email address on your account.  You can change your email address on an Atlassian account, and it will continue to uniquely identify you as the same person.

(I know, I know, it's pedantic - it looks like you log into Cloud with an email address, but it's not quite that)
