confluence change pageID after migration

After migration pageID changed. How we can return them if we know the original pageID

You don't. 

The page id is a unique identifier in the database, for the computers, not for us humans.  When you're importing, there's no way to keep the old id because it does not matter to us, and there's every chance the target system may have already used it.

Easy way to say 'no it is impossible'.


Why could not be done by matching pageName with old- and new- pageID in the database?


content table in the confluence database but has no pageID value for each page contenttype what I found this very very bad!


This is a big problem for all migration tasks. Confluence guys must find a solution, whilst they add pageID - pageName matching in database, in my opinion.
