Company is going through a minor rebrand, is it possible to do a mass "Control + F" & replace? Edited

Our company is changing some internal products from "A" to "B". Is there a way to find our where everything that says "A" will be shown, and/or can we do a bulk update to change everything to now read" B". 


Thank you in advance.

Hi Brian. We once did this on our server installation. We fixed some content directly in the database with SQL. To do this Confluence should either be shut down or the cache should be refreshed after the modifications. Unfortunately I think direct SQL access is not possible in a cloud installation.

Maybe you can export all you content, do the modification offline and finally upload your stuff again. Depending on the size of your installation this might be an option. But this definitely means some downtime.

Because you are on Cloud, you only option is to write a script that crawls through every page of your Confluence instance using the Cloud REST API .

Or pay for an app like qron-search-and-replace-for-confluence 

Depending on how many pages you have, surprisingly the brute force method may be the quickest and easiest. Basically search for the term, then open the pages one by one a use the embedded find/replace. It may be painful, but sometimes it is the best solution for one-off problems. Maybe hire a contractor to do it for you?
