How can I view All team calendars within an instance without knowing their names?

As we have been learning about Confluence, we have created (and thought deleted) a number of team calendars. However, it appears that we did not actually delete them as they occasionally show up. We want to do some house cleaning. Where can I find all team calendars associated with an instance?  I was hoping to find a macro or perhaps something in Content Tools under Space Tools that would list them all, but it has eluded me.

Hi Holly,

I'm not aware of any way to do this from the web interface. It doesn't look like the calendar search function supports wildcards.

If you have database access or can work with a DBA, you can fetch all the subcalendars and filter them out to show only the individual parent calendars. We're using Oracle, but something similar should work with MySQL/PostgreSQL.

SELECT distinct(dbms_lob.substr(name,4000,1)) FROM AO_950DC3_TC_SUBCALS

Since the name column (which actually contains the name values for the parent calendars) is a CLOB in the database, a little trickery (substring) was needed to be able to run a distinct function on it.

Sounds like a good feature request though; nothing even in the plugin admin allows you to view all calendars.

Thanks Daniel. I can talk with our DBA. Would be a nice function for administrators.

Hi Holly, just wondering if this ended up working for you and if your DBA had to make any query changes if you're running on a different database engine.
