Move Attachments to different Spaces

This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Moving an Attachment

Since it is not described:

To move attachments to a different space use spacename:pagename


It is a pity that this simple options are not included already. Maybe 32k$/year is too less? Maybe we have to wait for the next license-raise to have such simple options.

When I have a page with 32 attachments/pictures I have to move every. single. one. independently.

Such a pity :'(

For such mass operation I like to use webdav - just use your finder/filemanager and use wiki pages like folders on your desktop. Move to local drive and back to another wiki page.

Perhaps it helps

WebDAV sounds like the option we're looking for.
Thanks for the idea.

But still it s***s that Atlassian does not care about for *11 years* 

Hi Christian Not knowing your use case this is probably oversimplifying, but have you considered simply moving the page with the attachments to the other space? That way you are moving all 32 attachments at once.

If you are tying to move them to an existing page in another space then it's a toss up of whether to use the move page approach or just the steps of: download all from original page>drag in all to new page.

Hello Tom,

actually, my case is that we copied a page and the attachment have not been copied.
Since the page has been copied to a different space it is not described in here how to move attachments to different spaces. That is what I added as information.

Yes, when you move a page the attachments are moved too, but when you simply want to move attachments there is no real way to move it but your suggestion to download-reupload
