Search for unused attachments in page

ABoerio August 29, 2020

Hi All,

after having read this article, I wrote a short script to compare the filenames of the attachments actually used in a page with the filenames of the files actually attached to the page.

I'll make it then cycle through the various spaces to look for the many attcahments that users have been draggin in and then simply forgot there.

I still have to check for those attachments that are no more present in their storage page but maybe linked from some other page, even though I guess this should be a rare case.

As usual for me, it's not perfect/elegant & not finished, but it seems to do what I need.

If it can be of some start/help for anybody, then I'm happy.


import com.atlassian.confluence.pages.PageManager
import com.atlassian.sal.api.component.ComponentLocator
import com.atlassian.confluence.pages.Attachment
import com.atlassian.confluence.pages.AttachmentManager
import org.jsoup.Jsoup

def pageManager = ComponentLocator.getComponent(PageManager)
def attachmentManager = ComponentLocator.getComponent(AttachmentManager)

//Aqcuisisco pagina
def page = pageManager.getPage('~MySpace', 'Check Attachments')
//Acquisisco contenuto pagina
def body = page.bodyContent.body

//Definisco lista allegati citati nella pagina
def usedAttachments=[]
//Definisco lista di tutti gli allegati della pagina
def existingAttachments=[]
//Definisco lista allegati non utilizzati
def unusedAttachments=[]

//Faccio un parse del contenuto pagina
def parsedBody = Jsoup.parse(body)
//Cerco blocco attachment
def attachments ="ri|attachment")
//Scorro tutti i blocchi attachment trovati
attachment ->

//Cerco allegati alla pagina
def loadedAttachments=attachmentManager.getLatestVersionsOfAttachments(page)

//Riordino le liste

//Controllo utilizzo

log.warn('Allegati alla pagina:')

log.warn('Presenti nella pagina:')

log.warn('Allegati non utilizzati nella pagina:')


Ciao, A

@ABoerio - grazie mille! 🙏 

This is a useful script for admins to houseclean and potentially free up storage capacity.
