Where does Confluence saves the "About Me" field in the database?


I'm trying to find out where, in the database, is the "About Me" field (that you can fill in your user profile) saved in the database!.  I'm already aware of the OS_PROPERTYENTRY table, but this particular field from the profile doesn't seem to be persisted in that table.

Can anybody help me out on this? Thank you very much!

"About Me" stored in the bodycontent table, you could try the following query to retrieve the information:

select * from bodycontent where body like '%About Me%'


I hope by now you must have found the solution as this was posted a long back. Still, for others, I think they might want to know the answers. I was also stuck at one point but later I managed to find the way.

You can find it by looking up the contentid in BODYCONTENT table but before that be sure to determine the same by running below query.

NOTE: username implies the user whose 'about me' has changed.

select contentid from CONTENT where CONTENTTYPE='USERINFO' and username='<USER>';


The same thing can be done using a subquery:

select * from BODYCONTENT where contentid in
(select contentid from CONTENT where CONTENTTYPE='USERINFO' and username='<USERNAME>');


I hope this is helpful!
