Can I search and replace across an entire space?

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.

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.
