I'd like the change the author of a page to better reflect the ownership of a page.
There's a few questions about this but they seem to be old and don't relate to Confluence Cloud.
Is there a way?
Just so I’m clear, Atlassian provides a SaaS to a huge number of global enterprises, is itself a public company with a market cap of almost 40 billion dollars, and does not support a method to change Confluence page creators?
For companies that have experienced staff changes (ie all companies), the solutions is “just ignore the name of that person that is no longer with your company who authored all the pages”?
This will work from a page navigation standpoint (can park the page where the old one was) but it doesn't work from a bookmark standpoint (i.e., how most people navigate) since the page index changes when it's copied. All permissions have to be re-applied as well, which can be quite onerous. It's ludicrous that simply changing the author isn't supported.
I've had to use the "copy page" approach when I have truly needed to do this, but have always assumed it is locked down / not changed, as that is the person that truly created the page (irrespective of employment status, staff changes, etc.). Probably for the same reasons you wouldn't change the user / date timestamp (created by) on a database record. Just guessing...
