How do I update the same links across different pages/spaces in atlassian


Here is the use case for the above query. In our Wiki, we have different spaces and a lot of pages within each space. However, we have used the same link, for example '' to inform someone to contact our support team to get more information. Now, we want to update all such instances, such that when a user clicks on, he is taken to a different link. For example, Is it possible? Let me know if you need some more information.

You can use the Search and Replace Plugin.

Edit: I think you could use @Bob Swift [Bob Swift Atlassian Add-ons] 's CLI for this. Have a look here:

Sry, just seen that you are on cloud version. Not sure how to do it there.

Specifically, you will need to use modifyPage ( And yes, it will work with Confluence Cloud.

All of the Command Line Interface (CLI) add-ons (for JIRA, Confluence, Stash, FishEye, Crucible, etc) run on both Server and Cloud instances. ;)


 you can update the link by using the database query.

UPDATE BODYCONTENT SET BODY = replace(BODY, 'http://old_link', 'http://new_link)



Create the shared page in one place.  That can be in one of the affected Spaces or in a common space ( maybe call it "Shared Pages" ).

Insert that link in your existing Spaces anywhere its needed.

When you make changes to the "shared space's" page the changes will show up everywhere.
