Is it possible to bulk delete Spaces in Confluence.

Hi,

There are around 60 Spaces that needs to delete in conflunece, and doing it manually is a big task. Could you please let me know if there is a way to bulk delete the spaces.

Hi Shivani,

if you use the Bob Swift CLI you can automate that with a common action.
Must be something like this:
--action runFromContentList --cql "space in key1,key2,keyX" --common '-action removeSpace --space @space@' --continue

Within Confluence, there is no way to bulk-delete spaces.

Kind regards
André

Hi Shivani,

Please also take a look at this older question. It contains a lot of valuable information (similar to the post from Andre).

Best,

Maarten

Thanks Andre and Maarten.

As there is no way to bulk-delete spaces within Confluence, I will have to check on the CLI.

 

Many Thanks,

Shivani
