We are having lots of spcaes created in confluence, and we have categories so each space in to some category for our convenience, Now we want to edit a particular Space Category , can anybody please let us know how we can Edit the Confluence Category becouse removing the existing one and adding the new one is very painful as we have assosiated 100+ spaces with that category.
is there any simple way to do this.
Your labels for your space(s) are stored within your database. A simple method would be to change the display names within the labels. This will only work if you are on premisis with confluence.
Prior to doing anything within the database ensure you have a good backup. Please do the follow with caution. If you dont have a full understanding of what you are doing then do not proceed.
Run the following within SQL will display all of your used labels.
SELECT * FROM [YOURDB].[dbo].[LABEL]
To adjust the names just run a SQL replace to adjust all labels to the new name you wish to give them. Once the names have been replaced restart confluence.
SQL Replace usage:
SELECT REPLACE (NAME, 'OldName', 'NewName') FROM [YOURDB].[dbo].[LABEL]
I came here looking for the same answer as Martin. The reason is because the Atlassian help files seem to be getting progressively more out of date, and, therefore, less useful.
If you came here looking for how to edit categories in a cloud instance, here's what to do.
Hopefully this helps you! :)
