We changed the URL to our confluence server and I wanted to update any hard links to the old URL with the new URL using the CLI tool. However I am running into problems.
I tried using the example on this page:
It works for me, however, when I try to edit all the spaces, it only edits the test page I created. So I'm not sure what I am doing wrong. This is the command I am running:
confluence --action runFromContentList --search "\"https://confluence.in.here.com\"" --space @all --common "--action modifyPage --id @pageId@ --findReplace \"https://wiki.ad.navteq.com/confluence#https://confluence.in.here.com\" --special \" #\" "
When I use the command to just "getContentList" it only returns the page I just created as a test as well as a different page in the same space:
C:\Users\lestrell\Desktop\atlassian-cli-3.8.0>confluenceprod --action getContent List --search "\"https://confluence.in.here.com\"" 2 results in list "Id","Type","Title","URL","Excerpt" "214302939","page","change","https://confluence.in.here.com/display/BSGS/change" ," ... aaa https://confluence.in.here.comá bbbb á ccc Testingá dddd" "113934408","page","html macro","https://confluence.in.here.com/display/BSGS/htm l+macro"," ... font color=""red"" size=""3""><strong>Wiki URL has changed to ""h ttps://confluence.in.here.com"". <a href=""https://confluence.in.here.com/displa y/HELP/Upgradeto5.5andMigrationtoaHERE.comURL""> Click here</a> for more informa tion.</strong></font> </center> <center ... "
So, I'm not sure what I am doing wrong. Can anyone help?
Search uses Confluence text search, so you can go to the UI and conduct the same search. See how many hits you get? I suspect you really want to find links that will be broken with the change. There probably isn't a way to subset pages that have the link. So, that means doing all pages.
No, it just means it will be slow doing the change for all pages. Perhaps do a space at a time. Same approach as before, but not using search. Instead, use runFromPageList with --space XXX. This will go through each page in the space and attempt the findReplace. If nothing is found, the page should not be updated (verify this on a few of your pages first if you like). It takes a lot longer since each page must be downloaded.
I've been trying to complete this same task with no results. It is basically the same step listed here as exmaple 1:
confluence.sh --action runFromPageList --space "RDAISC" --common "--action modifyPage --id @pageId@ --findReplace \"http://wiki.ad.navteq.com/confluence#http://confluencedev.in.here.com\" --special \" #\" "
The interesting thing is that I can get this to replace any normal text on a page, but it will not alter the URL in anchor tags. Any thoughts?
Take a look at an example page's storage format and verify the text matches your find string. Next simplify and run just against the example page and use --debug on the action and see if that helps you see what is going on. Open an issue if you have problems and provide the log.
