Each Confluence user has a User Profile area, through which numerous account management features can be accessed.

On this page:

Finding your User Profile

Go to the 'Profile' view for your user profile. To do this:

  • Log in to Confluence, if you have not already done so.
  • Go to your name at the top of the page. (This is the 'User' menu. A dropdown list will appear when your cursor hovers over the 'User' menu.)
  • Select 'Profile' from the dropdown list. The 'Profile' view will open.

The profile view is divided into the tabs, each described in a separate section below.

Screenshot: User profile

The 'Administer User' link is visible to Confluence administrators only. The administrator can click this link to go directly to the user management screen in the Administration Console.


  • View and edit your personal details, such as your name and email address details and optionally, your photograph and other personal information. Note that as a security precaution, in order to change your email address, you will be required to re-enter your password.
  • Upload a profile picture (optional).
  • Change your password.


  • View the recent activity of users that you are following via the Network view.
  • Follow other users from this view.
