Confluence: Bulk move pages

A group setup an automated user for Confluence that creates pages automatically after a specific task. They have, however, set it up to create pages in the wrong space. Is there a way to move pages in bulk instead of one-by-one?

Hi,

put all the pages under one parent page and move this parent page to the other space. The child pages will be moved with the parent page.

Best regards

There's not any way in the Confluence Admin panel that I have seen, but you may consider altering the CONTENT.SPACEID field in the database for each affected record. There may be other fields to alter, but that's technically how you can move content between spaces quickly.

Also note, that content in 1 space may have different permissions than content in another, so if you mess with the database to switch content betwene spaces you may unintened side affects unless you also review the content permissions in CONTENT_PERM table.

Under Space Tools > Content Tools > Reorder Pages there's an option to drag pages to their new position.  Helpful if you're moving things not too far away from its existing hierarchy and beats having to click on each page individually and move.
