Is there a an external links validator in Confluence?

I'd like to find all broken external links in a given space. An external link is a http:// or https:// link to an outside resource, and it's broken if it cannot be opened normally in browser for any reason.

I see there's a Link Validator plugin from Service Rocket, but it actually asks for a single URL as a parameter. (How useful is that.)

There's also a Python script from Atlassian and an article - - but this script does not find bad links.

Thanks for any advice.

Hi all,

Same question, is there a way to detect broken links in a space?


Thanks in advance,
