I don't think that is possible, however here's a workaround:

  1. make a copy of the page
  2. delete the original page
  3. move or copy the copy of the page to the original page name
  4. the "new" original page name will have your name as the creator

@marc -Collabello--Phase Locked- 's response is a very good suggestion.

If you need something on a larger scale, there's a tool on the Marketplace called Confluence Command Line Interface (CLI) offered by Bob Swift Atlassian apps. If you have many pages to change, I believe it's able to do this. It also has multiple options to report, modify data, and copy data for a number of purposes.

I don't work for them, but have used the tool on occasion for more than a year. It's been very helpful.


Thanks for the plug @Darryl St_ Pierre .  I do work for them. ;)

@Thomas Estermann If you want try the CLI route you can download it here.  Feel free to post here with questions about how to use the CLI for this case.
