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.
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?
Hah, it took a while but i found a solution myself!
It's a macro called /include page and it completely solves my problem.
Here is a short explanation by K15t team including some other useful tips, so i encourage everyone to watch whole thing.
@Capi _resolution_you asked to poke you, so please check if that gonna be useful for you too.
just came across this post. I am co-founder of ij-solutions and developed this little app during this years Codegeist hackathon: https://marketplace.atlassian.com/apps/1226657/content-toolbox-for-confluence-cloud?tab=overview&hosting=cloud
Maybe it can solve your problem as you can do, beside other things, search&replace over a bunch of pages. So, basically a bulk change. We would appreciate any feedback on the app and what can be done better or what other "tools" might be useful as well.
Ditto. I did see some articles about using the API or scriptrunner.But nothing that solves my problem.
But I don't think there is much you can do in the first place - you cant possibly anticipate all possible changes that you might want to make in the future. Templates seem to be the best approach.
A bulk change option similar to that in jira would be nice, but I'm not sure how you would do that for confluence pages.
