How to find all pages which have not been converted to the new format?

I have been creating Confluence pages since 2018.  I have some pages in the old format and some in the new format.  Currently when I come across a page in the old format, I scroll down to the bottom of the page, Click Preview Page, Convert the Page and then Publish it on the new format.  The problem is that I am a user (not a Confluence admin) and with hundreds of pages, I don't have an easy way to figure out which ones need to be converted.  I am not looking to convert all of them in bulk but I would like to find a way to get a listing of all the pages in my space that are non-converted so I can convert them over as I have bandwidth.  I would be open to pulling this data from the REST API if there isn't a way to find them via the UI.

Use Get content properties in the API:

You'll see something like this returned if the page has been edited/migrated to the new editor:

"id": "1234567890",
"key": "editor",
"value": "v2",
"version": {
"when": "2021-07-28T01:34:13.798Z",
"message": "",
"number": 1,
"minorEdit": false,
"contentTypeModified": false
"_expandable": {
"content": "/rest/api/content/1234567890"
"_links": {
"self": ""

Is there a way to pull all pages in a space or do I literally have to go to each page in the space and check for that value?

Yes - use the search API and ask it to return the editor metadata in the results. As a starting point:


You will need to page through the results if you have lots of content or add additional CQL filters to narrow the results, e.g pages for a particular space or date range.

To the best of my knowledge, you can't just ask for pages where editor.value = v2 as the property would need to be indexed by search.

One other suggestion - ask Atlassian support to run a backend query for you.
