Hi Andreas,

You could do this with the Confluence Command Line Interface plugin - https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/org.swift.confluence.cli - which has a removeComments (https://bobswift.atlassian.net/wiki/display/CSOAP/Documentation#Documentation-removeComments) command.

Would that work for you?

Thank you, but that will not be comfortable enough for our authors, as they need a web based way to do this..

Ah, ok. There are couple of open feature requests (https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONF-3902 and https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONF-5023) relating to bulk deleting comments via the web interface, but they haven't been implemented yet. Alternatively, anyone with the remove comment permission on a space can delete the comments one by one.

Andrew.

How about create a page that uses the SQL plugin. That would give you access to the comments.
