Bulk move of Confluence pages - how to?

Hi All,

we have a space with 200+ pages right under the space home page without hierarchy. Now we want a page under the home which will be the parent page of these 200+ pages. At his point we can do the move one by one which is very cumbersome. Do you know any feature which enables us to move bulk pages under a parent page?

You could also use the Power Scripts for Confluence add-on:


It is a free add-on.

You could first clone the required page providing the parent page id with the clonePage method. Then you could delete the original page with the deletePage method.


I'm not sure if I'm correct in saying this - in the sense that there might be consequences that I can't think of at the moment, but can you:

  • copy the home page and rename it slightly. For example: Homexxx
  • then create a new page and call it: Home
  • then re-order the page called Home so that it is above the page called Homexxx. You can do this in Browse/Pages or by using Tools/Move.

If you do this the 200 pages should stay under the Homexxx page.

I'm not sure if there would be any ill effects in renaming the original Home page and then re-ordering it, but I can't think of any.

It may be best to wait until you see what other people say, but I've a feeling I've done this in the past and it worked.


Confluence Command Line Interface has actions that can help. Specifically movePage and that can be combined with runFromPageList or runFromContentList or similar.
