Is there an alternative for Search and Replace plugin

Agne Palenskiene March 6, 2024

For Confluence Server we were using the Search and Replace plugin (https://marketplace.atlassian.com/apps/1212823/search-and-replace?tab=overview&hosting=server), but it is no longer available, especially since we moved to Data Center.

Is there any alternative plugin or a way to search the space and replace hyperlinks?

Hi @Agne Palenskiene , 

I only ever used ScriptRunner to do such a thing. But that was for a use-case where I - as the Confluence admin - ran such scripts (as Jobs in Scriptrunner). Not a use-case where regular users could use this 'find-and-replace'. 

But a quick Marketplace search surfaced this app: https://marketplace.atlassian.com/apps/1217476/find-and-replace-utility-plugin?hosting=datacenter&tab=overview 

Maybe some other community member has experience with that one. Or you can start a trial and try it. 

If you also have the use-case that Admins only have to run this 'find-and-replace', then ScriptRunner is a solution that can be used for many things, especially for admins. 

Best regards, Rik

Hi used that app to change the product name in the docs I was working on privately and it worked but I had to run the same job twice as it didn't do all the instances at once.

But it was about 3 months ago.

Still, it worked.

I suggest testing the app on a small sample (like export a section of a space, test the app).
