Where are favorite pages stored in the database?

I'm trying to run a sql query on what pages people have favorited.

Where does this information live in the Confluence database?

Just to update this topic in case anyone have the same question, I created a query for this:

SELECT s.spacename, um.username
FROM spaces s INNER JOIN content_label cl ON s.spacedescid = cl.contentid
INNER JOIN user_mapping um ON cl.owner = um.user_key
INNER JOIN label l ON cl.labelid = l.labelid AND l.name = 'favourite';

Hope it helps :)

I figured out the answer for myself.

Favorite pages are treated as labels. You can apply the "favourite" label (not the spelling) to a page. So you can see what pages have been favorited by looking up the favourite labelid in the label table, then joining it to the content_label table to figure out what content has the labelid applied to it.

In order to get a table showing you the title of the page and who favorited it, you'd have to join the content table to the join above.


The above query fetches the spaces. Could you please help me in pointing out the pages along with the spaces marked as favorite from database?




Also, is there a way to get information on favorites from Confluence Home directory?
