Editing a template or a bulk change the pages?

Greetings, i've created a custom template for my confluence articles. It's pretty generic, basically just a footer for a page with a disclaimer.

CORE text

Now, I decided to edit that template and add few more words. Unfortunately, that change does not affect pages that are already created with the previous version of the template.

Now, I have 60+ pages and can manually edit them, but I plan to move the whole company wiki with 3000+ pages to confluence. So I want to make sure that I'll have the ability to bulk edit footer/headers of the pages. Template seems does not work is there any other options?

It seems I can use API to select and bulk edit, but maybe I just need to create those pages in a special manner in the first place?

I think you're doing everything right and templates don't work retroactively. However, if you find out some other way, please let me know, as this would be interesting for me as well.
