Any way of labelling pages en-masse

I'm looking for some way of labelling multiple pages without having to go into every single page.

Any suggestions (including enhancement requests which I can vote up) would be most appreciated.

Can anything be done by exporting a space to XML, editing the XML file and then reimporting it into a new space?

[Has anyone investigated methods of assigning pages to labels rather than vice-versa. Similar to the way admins can either edit groups for a user or add members to a group. If I could just select the label and then enter the list of pages I want associated, that would still be easier.]

Use the Confluence CLI - you can list pages, add labels to pages etc.

Thanks. That did the trick.

We've had great success with the Label Management plugin, however it officially is only compatible with Confluence versions up to 2.10.4.

(We're on 2.10.2 and about to upgrade, so I don't know yet whether it truly will work with a more recent version. The compatibility listing on the Plugin Exchange is often out-of-date.)


You could do it with Label Manager for Confluence plug in.
You could search for similar labels in a space and then merge them into one standard label.
You could also do bulk operations like appending , adding and removing labels.
Documentation is here:

Does the Label Manager work for blog posts aswell?

Hello! We have recently made a free plug in Power Scripts for Confluence which you can download from the Marketplace to help automate Confluence administration, one of the features is bulk labelling. Here's a short video on how to do it 

Hope this helps!
