Sure it's possible, especially with Bob Swift's SQL Plugin.
Here's the relevant query (this is for Confluence 4.1.2, so it might be different from 3.5 -- just check the schema):
update CONTENT set CREATOR="<new creator name>" where CONTENTID="<your content id>"
You can get details about installing, configuring, and adding permissions for this plugin here:
I'm using Confluence 4.3, and this solution doesn't quite work. The suggested SQL command does change the creator displayed at the top of the page, but the author of the page that comes back in an RSS feed is still the old author. The same is true for the REST API. Also, after editing the page, the author somehow gets reverted back to the original author.
If you modify the update statement a bit, the above problems go away:
update content set creator='CONTENT_ID' where contentid = CONTENT_ID or prevver = CONTENT_ID
Hi all, the way this is done has changed somewhat in recent versions. Please see this page for detailed instructions: https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/CONFKB/How+to+change+the+creator+of+a+page
