How do I bulk delete or move pages in cloud Confluence ?

Fakhfouri Vahid March 9, 2021

I would like to delete a group of pages or move them instead of doing so page by page. Is there a way to do so on the cloud version of Confluence?

Hi @Deepanshu Natani 

How can I suggest this feature for Confluence please?

Oh my... it's now 2022 and we still cannot Bulk Delete/Move Pages to other Spaces... literally just had to do the unbelievable one-by-one activity this morning.

It's so painful 😭

If we could simply bulk rename pages (add a suffix), that would help. The copy pages feature adds a prefix, which is not very helpful. Makes navigation really unusable.

@Fun Man Andy Painful yet hilarious. Luckily "Product Discovery" is the current priority for Atlassian rather than minor/useless features like multiple boards on JIRA and bulk delete on Confluence. /s

True that @LAL - I gave up looking at JAC some years ago. Bit depressing... 🥹

(My favourite one was being able to change Project Lead in Next-gen projects... the JAC ticket claimed it was not easy to accomplish and was low prio... but then a Marketplace vendor built an app in about 2hr and released it for free, just to show how "difficult" it was. Now THAT was hilarious. laugh 🤣)

@Christal Vandecarwe had this same problem with titles so we built an app that includes a bulk add "Page title prefix/suffix". One of a few features of Easy Toolbox, includes a bulk find and replace. It's fairly new, we are adding more and more features like bulk label editing. It's all built in Forge so zero security concerns.

Hi @Fakhfouri Vahid 

Bulk deletion/ move of Confluence pages is not directly possible.

Workaround is to create a temporary space then move all the pages into that space. Finally delete the space.

Hello @Deepanshu Natani ,

Thanks for the comment but don't you think that deleting one by one is easier than creating a space, moving one by one and deleting the space?

In Jira, there is a very useful bulk change function. I would need the same in Confluence.

Hi @Fakhfouri Vahid 

Yes, a bulk operation as in Jira would be great, but unfortunately that is not available in Confluence as of now :-(
