How to get a list of user mentions in Confluence

hi all,

There are places where users have user mentions in Confluence ( Example - for more info, contact @Johndoe). These users are no longer employees and I want to edit those user mentions to the primary contact person.

Is there a way to get a list of all user mentions on a page/space?

thanks !

This may help you find the pages you need.

Could you try that and let me know how it works for you?

Today in Confluence cloud none of the filters shown in the screen capture above are available under [CONFLUENCE-URL]/wiki/search

You can find your ID and search for it. Just inspect your mention using Chrome Dev Tools (or any other0

 And then paste that into the search in Confluence.

Only thing that did work :) What a cumbersome process for such a simple thing..

@Thomas Reyskens yeah, but it's a one time thing and then you can bookmark your seach ;)
