There's another way, but it has some caveats that I've mentioned below. You can install the Copy Space plugin (https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/com.atlassian.confluence.plugin.copyspace) and then copy the space to a new space. Untick the option called "Use existing authors and dates". This will copy your space to a new space, with a new space key. The author of all the pages will be the person who copied the space. You could then remove the original space.
Please note the following caveats:
In other words, the above method may be useful if the above points are not a drawback in your situation. It's definitely worth testing the solution and assessing the results before you use it for real.
I hope this is useful, or at least interesting. ;)
Hi all, the way this is done has changed somewhat in recent versions. Please see this page for detailed instructions: https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/CONFKB/How+to+change+the+creator+of+a+page
The closest solution for you is described in the https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Changing+Usernames page. However, this approach requires some heavy database manipulation, so make sure to create a database backup before applying it.
There's currently a feature request being tracked in http://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONF-4063 that should facilitate this process via Confluence interface.
Hope it helps.
There is another JIRA Improvement tracking this as well. More from the perspective to change owner of a page rather than change the user-id for a person.
Hopefully this will be reality! It is annoying that the person who does a massive import to Confluence will be the one watching all pages and receive notifications when pages are updated. It should reallly be possible to change this ownership!
