How can I find all the broken links in a space?

We have many broken links in one of our Confluence Spaces that contains roughly 750 pages. Is there a way I can generate a report that lists down all the broken links across the space?

Thanks for sharing the link, Piotr. But this does not work for the Cloud instance. We are running Confluence Cloud.

There is no way to do this on Cloud - all the "tricks" need access that you don't have on Cloud.

Yeah, I am realizing it. This is sad though.

If you are open to it, you can try exporting your space to a single page HTML, and then use a text editor that supports regex to extract a complete list of links.

For instance:

Find > .*?(https://docs.confluence.[a-zA-Z0-9\.\/\-\+]+) and replace it with $1\n

That'll help you get a complete list of links, and you use automation to test them.

Does anyone else see the irony in a discussion about finding dead links that includes a link to a solution that happens to now be a dead link, itself? ;-)

you can refer this link, here in the overview of space it will enlists all the pages that you have created in your space

Thanks, but I cannot access the link you have shared.

The link is nonsense, yes.

But if you go to your space overview as a space admin, it will list them.

I want something more like a report that would list all the broken links a space contains.
