Convert absolute links to relative links?

Hi all,

I've converted our older confluence 3.x to 5.x, all went well, however I noticed that any links to other confluence resources within a page (such as a re-direct link to view an associated resource on the same confluence) are absolute links. I believe this is because the 3.x confluence, when adding a link to another page resource, puts in the absolute path instead of relative. This wouldn't matter if we kept the same domain, however the 5.x confluence is on a different server resource and the domain is different.

Is there a utility or something that I can run which will convert all links that contain a domain equal to a string I specify, to something else that I specify?

Thanks in advance.

Bump, anything at all?

This functionality is in

But you would need to change the base url to the old domain, then run the script, then change back to the new base url. It doesn't have the option for you to specify an arbitrary url.

Recommend testing on a copy of your instance first.
