How do you move all page attachments to another page?

Is there a way to move all attachments from one page to another?

At the moment I use the Confluence CLI to copy all attachments on a page, but I still have to manually edit the page I copied them to so it refers to the new attachments. It's not clear that using the CLI then doing this is actually quicker than moving each attachment individually.

I know there's a feature request for this, but can anyone suggest a workaround in the meantime?

Hello Beth,

my personal workaround is :

1. Copy page (it will create a new page and all its attachment)

2. Edit new page just removing all its content (but not the attachment)

3. Add new content to this new page

I know that it's not a great solution but currently, it is the only way to do that.

Hope this helps,

The CLI can also do find and replace on page content. So, you could have it look for instances of the old page and replace it with the new page.

That might work - so that involves changing the storage format so that it refers to the new page title?
