How do I produce a list of all attachments and the pages they are attached to?

Jason Finns Sep 23, 2015

I need to produce a list of all attachments in Confluence, and the pages they are attached to.  I am attempting to pull this information from the database, but cannot see a way to join the ATTACHMENTS table to the CONTENT table.

I cannot use the listing of attachments in the Content Tools section of a space, because I need this information exported to Excel.

Hi Jason,

In fact I also don't see any method to join the Attachments and Content tables from the database, however, this tables have been merged since Confluence 5.7. Now attachments are listed on the "contenttype" column from the Content table, so you would be able to query all content where the contenttype column is an attachment. Below is an example query for that:

SELECT * FROM CONTENT WHERE contenttype LIKE 'ATTACHMENT'

I'm not sure if it would be feasible for you to upgrade Confluence to 5.7 or later, however it's the only workaround I see for that.

Thanks.

Regards,
LM

Thank you for your answer Luiz.  Unfortunately, I cannot upgrade my Confluence instance right now, so it appears that I am out of options, which is dissappointing.  I appreciate your reply though.

You can use the Confluence Command Line Interface (CLI) to produce lists of attachments in CSV format that you can import into Excel. Use the getAttachmentList action.
