We’re looking for a way to perform mass string replacements across all of our Confluence pages.
Many of our pages contain non-clickable hyperlinks to our network folders (i.e. resources outside of Confluence or Jira) in our corporate network. We're renaming these folders/locations and now we need a way to do a bulk replacement of the URL strings. We have over 6000 pages that have strings that need replaced, so manually isn't an option.
We can produce a table of ‘what to find’ and ‘what to replace with’, we just need a query or tool of some sort that our IT department can safely run that will make the changes. Help guide us please!
Old string: \\corp.ourcompany.net\department\Shop\purchases\wireframes\Shop_Navigation
New string: \\corp.ourcompany.net\marketing\online\store\purchases\wireframes\Shop_Navigation
Confluence Command Line Interface (CLI) and use modifyPage. Use runFromPageList to run the modify across a set of pages. This might take a while to run, but can be done while the system is live. The change will be recorded in page history.
An alternative would be to shutdown Confluence and do the appropriate update sql against the content table.
