Hi Boris - I did not find anything to help my case from the "cwd_user_attribute" table. The investigation led me to the "logininfo" and "cwd_user" tables. With these I am able to list the names of users who logged in to Confluence for the last 30 days.
I however discovered that Confluence does not keep in the database a history of user logins (somebody correct me here please). It just has two columns, "successdate" and "prevsuccessdate". When a user logs-in the next date, it updates these 2 columns accordingly.
This brings me to trying the "user logging" information. Could anybody please show me how to extract data from the log file using Bob Swift's SQL Plugin, or by creating a new User Macro?
You can not get a historical account from within Confluence. There are 2 alternative methods:
1. You can enable user access logging per the directions here: https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/CONFKB/How+to+Enable+User+Access+Logging and then parse the resulting logs
2. Record when someone last authenticated regularly, then parse that data. You can modify the query:
select user_id from cwd_user_attribute where attribute_name = 'lastAuthenticated';
to pull more info from the cwd_user_attribute table (in this case you will also need the date).
It's officially Tuesday, which means it's officially time for another tip to help you better navigate this space we call the Atlassian Community. 😄 I got a great question from community member, Sa...
