Is it possible to find all pages created or edited by a specific user in Confluence?


I'm trying to find all pages that are created or edited by a user in Confluence.

Is it possible to do that without asking SQL questions?

  1. Go to your site search.
  2. Look in the left hand bar. Press "Add a filter".
  3. Select "Creator" and enter the user's name.

This worked - thank you!!!!!!!

normally this would have solved my problem, but unfortunately the user I am filtering for has left the organisation and is not an active user - so the filter doesn't pick them up!....  Is there any way I could ask Atlassian if they could get this filter to work for inactive users as well?

Is it possible to reactivate the user long enough to get the report and then deactivate the user again?

Unfortunately, our confluence (cloud version) does not have a left bar, not n add filter option, nor "creator". It does have a filters on the right, including "spaces" "Contrubutors", "type" etc, but there is no option to search by the user who created the page.  I need to search all pages I created.

@shob I'm not sure this is possible in Cloud version. Cloud versions of all Atlassian products are severely hamstrung.

I'm using the Cloud version. It is possible to click in the search field and then return (or select Advanced Search in the list), so that a full advanced search page appear. On the right side, "Contributors" : <Filter by user> is one of many search filters.

You could user the Content by User and Recently Updated macros. It looks like the Content by User macro shows across all spaces and the Recently Updated lets you specify to look across all spaces. You will probably have to de-dupe the recently updated results, but if you are opposed to using SQL that is the easiest way I know to get the pages a user has updated.

Try looking here:

I think you can run a search using something like


But I'm no expert.

You can also look at their profile, that has a list of the pages they've worked on. Also, you might be able to use the Latest Updates macro and specifiy the user you're looking for. I think this would have to be done on a space by space basis though.



I could not see that this is working 100%

cool! works perfectly ! thanks for the hint :)

Unfortunately, this does not work at all (at least for cloud version). If you try to use username:"first.last" or username:"" in the sites search box, it only brings back pages with "usrename" somewhere in the content.
