Any way to bulk remove drafts in confluence?

I have approx 100 drafts and would like to bulk remove them.

And I'd like to provide this option to our users.

Hi Anne,

You can easily deduct the SQL you need from the SQL on that page.

You'll need to do the following :

  1. select * into temp_conf from CONTENT where CONTENTTYPE='DRAFT' (maybe change this to how it works in you DB)
  2. DELETE FROM BODYCONTENT where CONTENTID IN (select CONTENTID from temp_conf);
  3. DELETE from ATTACHMENTS where PAGEID in (select CONTENTID from temp_conf);
  4. DELETE from CONTENT where CONTENTID in (select CONTENTID from temp_conf);

Keep in mind that doing stuff in your database is not something you should consider doing lightly and is completely at your own risk.

Please take a backup before doing any changes.

Best regards,

Peter

Thanks - unfortunately this is nothing I can provide to our users.

 

This is so essential when your application creates a draft every time you open a page for editing.  In general, I've noticed that Atlassian software is *severely* lacking when it comes to bulk editing functionality *cough jira cough*.
