Editing Your User Profile

Your user profile contains basic information about you. If you do not have a personal space, your user profile will be displayed when anyone clicks your name in the People Directory.

To edit your user profile:

  1. Choose your profile picture at top right of the screen, then choose Profile.
    Or, choose the Profile link in the sidebar of your personal space.
  2. Choose Edit Profile.
  3. Enter details about yourself in the form displayed.
  4. Click Save.


Full Name Your name as you would like it to appear in your profile.
Email Your email address which will be used to send you mail notifications.
Phone Your phone number.
IM Your Instant Messenger (IM) details.
(info) To suit a variety of IM applications, this option accepts any string value. For example, you can enter IM details in the form of an email address, such as ' or a user ID, like '123456789'.
Website Your website's URL.
About me Information about yourself that other users can view (such as your professional information, hobbies, and other interests). You can use Confluence wiki markup in this field.
Position The title of your position within your organisation.
Department The name of your department within your organisation.
Location Your location. This could be a town, city, region or country.

Handy Hint

Confluence administrators can configure Confluence to mask email addresses (e.g. 'example at atlassian dot com'), protecting your email address from search engine spiders and the like.
