I want to validate every Link on my Confluence Instance

Hello there

I have a lot of external Links in my Confluence. And as you know, every day there are Link beiing changed. They won't work. Now my question is, is there a Plugin or even something in Confluence integratet, where i can check if all my Links a properly working?

Thanks in advance.

I think this was answered in  Link validation in Confluence for links inside HTML Macros, specifically there was a blog post from an Atlassian techwriter in 2011 that included a Python script that will validate links embedded in Confluence pages. 

Hopefully, this is what you were needing.

Hello Stephen

Thanks for your Answer. I think this will be the thing i was looking for. Now I'm just struggling to understand how to run the script...

Late in reply, but for others that find this as I did...
The script was written in late 2011, is not being maintained, and is using a soon-to-be unsupported API.  Plan on updating the script in order to get it to work, though the bones ought to be good.
