How do you replace a space's home page (with --action copyPage from CLI)?

Looking to replace a new space's @home with a default template.

Is this possible?

Yes, you should be able to do this. Use replace flag on the copy.


I did use the replace flag, but it doesn't work.  The command I used is:

--action copyPage --space "template" --title @home --newSpace "foo" --replace

Output is:

Page 'Home' copied to: 'Home' in space foo.  Page has id: 2196062

The page is copied to the new space, but it is not the home page.  I wonder if I could use --parent, but what argument would I give it?

If Home was not the home page of the target space, then it is just a page called Home just like any other page. If you wanted to replace the space configured home page, then you would need to get its name and use that on the newTitle parameter. 

We really should support @home on the newTitle parameter as well to be consistent: CSOAP-497.
