Atlassian's people directory

Atlassian’s people directory is the home for user profiles in Atlassian Cloud. Profiles combine information about you with content you’ve worked on, so you can use the people directory to find out more about someone, or find and resume your work. Of course, you can also view and manage your own profile, including your profile's privacy setting.

Your profile

Use your profile to tell people about yourself.

Upload your profile photo so that others can put a face to your name, and upload a header photo (at the top right) to give your profile some personality.

Manage your profile

Click Manage account to edit your profile information, security and privacy settings, and to see links to any Atlassian Cloud product settings.


Manage your profile information, and click on your profile photo to remove or change it.


Change your email and manage your email preferences.

If your Atlassian account is managed by your company or with Google G Suite, you'll need to ask your admin or go to your Google account settings to change your email address.


Change your password, and go to your Atlassian account to manage two-step verification and API tokens. 

If your Atlassian account is managed with Google G Suite or uses SAML single sign-on when you log in, you'll need to go to your Google account settings or ask your admin, to change your password.


Choose the level of privacy on your account to control who can see your profile information:

  • Only me - your profile information is not visible to others.

  • Everyone - your profile information is visible to people who share your email domain. This is the default setting.

  • Public - your profile information is visible to anyone who invites you to their content by email.

Note that your name, nickname and profile photo are always visible to people who invite you to their site by email. See the privacy example below.


See the products you have access to in the Atlassian Cloud site you’re viewing (this is based on the site URL, for example Click a product to change things like email notification preferences in your profile for that product.

Connected apps

See the third-party apps that you’ve allowed to access your Atlassian account information and content through OAuth. You can review the details, and revoke the access, of each app.

People Directory

Who can I see, and who can see me?

When you view the people directory, you see a blend of two sets of users:

  • Other users on the site whose email domain matches yours. This excludes known public email domains such as

  • Other users who have edited the same content as you in the last 90 days.

When others view their people directory, they'll only see your profile if either of those conditions is true for your account. They'll see your name, nickname and profile photo, but they'll only see other information from your profile (such as job title and time zone) if your privacy setting allows that.

Businesses with simple collaboration within the company can allow staff to see all other people in the company; more complex businesses involving vendors, clients, or contractors won’t unintentionally reveal all other users on the site.

Privacy example

Here's an example of how privacy settings work:

  • John works at Acme and has an email address of, and a privacy setting of Everyone at
  • Li Wei Hung works at Acme and has an email address of, and a privacy setting of Private.
  • Alexia is a contractor working with Acme, and has an email address of, and a privacy setting of Public.

Profiles in other places

The above profile visibility settings apply when viewing profiles in the Atlassian people directory.

Profiles visible in Jira, Confluence, Bitbucket, and Trello do not currently apply these settings. We are working towards being able to offer privacy controls within those products as well in order to provide more choice over your profile across products.
