How to bulk delete Confluence attachments

Hi, I need to delete hundreds of attachments on my confluence page. Now I am deleting them one by one and it's very painful and time-consuming. I found this tutorial video on YouTube (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PFZP8cmzm2Y&t=79s) that shows there was actually a bulk delete button. However, I could not find it on my confluence. Has the feature been deleted? Thank you

Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

No, there's nothing removed from Confluence.

The video is an advert for an app that adds bulk delete to Confluence.

Hi Adelia,

The YouTube video you linked is showing the capability of a marketplace app called "Page Assistant", which can be found on the marketplace here: Page Assistant | Atlassian Marketplace

This app is only available for the server versions of Confluence.

For Cloud I would suggesting looking at "Attachments Manager for Confluence": https://marketplace.atlassian.com/apps/1222381/attachments-manager-for-confluence?tab=overview&hosting=cloud

I do have one warning about attachments manager; we recently used it to remove a lot of 'unused' attachments from our site (with this apps built in function) and unfortunately it deleted a large amount of attachments that we did not want deleted. When it finds the 'unused' attachments it only searches the body of the Confleunce page, and the attachments we had were either linked to other plugins (draw.io) or within the comments.
