Can I search and replace across an entire space?

Martin February 25, 2021

Is it possible to search and replace across an entire space, preferably without the usage of an additional plugin?

Background: I have to search for a specific term, which was accidentally misspelled across an entire space (due to a blueprint) and replace it with the correct spelled term.


Thanks for your help!

In a word, no. You need either a plugin, or need to develop and external script that takes advantage of the API to perform that task.

It is not always elegant, but the quickest way to make the change is search for the misspelled term, and then open and edit the pages in turn. If you have time, it is a task that could be handled by a clerical position.

There are times when brute force makes sense, given the time it takes to develop a one-off solution.

Need an app. We found bulk find and replace across a space to be so valuable it led us to create Space Content Manager. It's also a more advanced way to find and replace on the page level as well.

It took us some time to ensure it works perfectly on enormous spaces, ones that companies know should be multiple spaces but never get around to doing so.

Hi @Martin ,

I believe you will need some application for it, see CONFSERVER-2522

This one Search and Replace looks promising, but please be aware, I didn't test it.
