While the page level find and replace is useful we also wanted to do it across a space so we created Find and Replace by Easy Apps (not allowing me to add the link to the app on the Atlassian Marketplace).

Hi @Nivedita this appears possible now: https://community.atlassian.com/t5/Confluence-questions/Find-and-replace-text-in-confluence/qaq-p/1183474

However if you ever need to find and replace text across an entire space rather than just a page you can use ScriptRunner for Confluence Cloud.

 

There's a script you can copy and paste into the Script Console feature and run. It will find a replace text for all pages in a space. The script is available here: https://library.adaptavist.com/entity/find-and-replace-text-across-space

 

If you want to try ScriptRunner you can get a 30 day free trial in the Marketplace.

Hi @Nivedita ,

 

As per the confluence native feature, will not be able to find and replace text. 

There is Atlassian ticket raised for the Confluence server. 

https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONFSERVER-2522

For now, you can use third-party apps (Qron Replace - Search and Replace for Confluence).

 

Thanks,
Manisha
