OnDemand Confluence - some users don't get indexed and are unsearchable, unmentionable and don't appear in a list of users.
So this is due to a known issue in Confluence, where sometimes a new user does not get added to the search index until you actually click on their profile in confluence.
After this, it'll get added to the index pretty much right away.
Hope this helps.
Is this issue still persisting? I took a look at the instance tied to your email address and it looks like all the users were showing up on the tests I ran. If the issue still exists, I'm wondering if it has to with the phonetic characters (I forget the proper name for them) not being indexed.
If the issue is persisting, please open a support ticket with the names of the users (so we don't post your account info here) and we can track down the issue.
Hello and thanks for the reply,
seems to be OK now. We have applied the workaround described by Ryan Dunn in the ticket we raised:

He tried visiting one of the affected user's profile and then it started to work...
The rest seems to be also OK now.
Thanks for the effort!

It had been working previously. Cheers!
