I have a swag of attachments (pngs) that I need to replace throughout a Confluence instance. These files are matched on filename. I can match a file invidiually, running getAttachmentList --regex "<filename>" gives me a match, but then what?
I wasn't able to get --common '-a addAttachment --file "filepath"' to then replace those files.
Anyone tried replacing image attachments en masse and had much luck?
Here's the command for anyone that wishes to do the same thing:
confluence -a runFromAttachmentList --space theSpace --regex "theimage.png" --common "-a addAttachment --space @space@ --title \"@title@\" --comment \"inserted via command line\" --file \"C:\filepath\image.png\" "
From here on in, batching is just a matter of mapping the parameters for the replacement files. You could also increase the scope of files with different parameters for the runFromAttachmentList, such as broadening the regex scope.
Thanks very much for your help Bob! (^_^)
Thanks for that Bob.
Just an additional query, when I run the command:
confluence -a runFromAttachmentList --space thespace --regex "image.png" --common "-a addAttachment --space @space@ --title "@title@" --comment 'inserted via command line' --file "C:\filepath\image.png"" --simulate
Simulate: -a addAttachment --space thespace --title Image Title --comment 'inserted via command line' --file C:\filepath\image.png
Run completed successfully. 1 actions were successful
But when I run the same command without the simulate, I get:
Error: Unexpected argument: Title
Error: Unexpected argument: via
Error: Unexpected argument: command
Error: Unexpected argument: line'
I've tried with both quotes and apostraphes, but still no dice. Is it a glaring mistake somewhere I'm not seeing?
