I am currently in the process of converging several spaces on our internally hosted Confluence and I keep hitting the 'A descendent page shares the same title of another page in the selected space.' message.
However I am unable to manually identify the offending page.
We only have a few hundred pages and not many of these have yet been moved to the new space so identifying this manually should of been easy but I cannot see a page with the same name.
My questions are;
Can you provide a SQL statement that would help identify duplicate page names across spaces so we can work through renaming them?
Are attachment names possibly causing this and if so can I again use a SQL statement to identify offending attachment names?
Please advise how best to proceed.
First, you can have attachments of the same name in a space so they shouldn't be causing the problem.
here is a SQL query (mssql & pgsql) that should give you duplicate names between spaces
select c.title from content c, spaces s where c.contenttype='PAGE' and c.content_status='current' and c.prevver is null and c.spaceid=s.spaceid and s.spacekey in ('SPACEKEY1', 'SPACEKEY2') group by c.title having count(*) > 1
Just replace your space keys for the examples in the 2nd last line. It ignores deleted pages & only checks the titles of the current version of pages.
if you want a report of all the pages, this will also work
select c.contentid , c.title , c.content_status , s.spacename , s.spacekey from content c, spaces s where c.contenttype='PAGE' and c.content_status='current' and c.prevver is null and c.spaceid=s.spaceid and s.spacekey in ('SPACEKEY1', 'SPACEKEY2') order by c.title
