Strange issue with admin account

In our Confluence instance I use two accounts.

- Admin account
- Personal account

Both accounts have a different username and full name, the only field which is similar is the email address.

If I try to look up my personal account, as I want to add myself to a page using the @ symbol, when I type either my personal username or full name, Confluence always suggest the admin account?!?

Tried changing the email address in the admin account, but also this didn't help.

Hi Melle,

It might be related to the Confluence content indecies.

I'd recommend you to rebuild the Rebuild the Content Indices from Scratch and check if you have similar issue after that.



Thanks, that resolved the issue!

Glad to hear that Melle :-)
