They clearly have access to Confluence and some people are available as watchers others aren't. When I view the People directory in Confluence - some people are missing. How do I get everyone into Confluence?

Not a good solution but if you're admin you can try to access http://server.domain/admin/users/viewuser.action?username=? (where '?' is proper username)... after hitting that page they seem to appear correctly (at least on my install). But then you need to hit every single user :)

I figured it out - - apparently some bug -- you have to go to

https://instance.atlassian.net/wiki/display/~user
And click on Administer and then save.  
That will force the system to index the user and they will start to appear.

This is a problem I am seeing with every new user I input. When are they going to fix this?
