From this other Answer, one alternative for that would be to use the Confluence Command Line Interface from Bob Swift, as quick script for that. As his example:


It can be used to script a cleanup or archive policy. Use action getAttachmentList to get attachments create date and then removeAttachment to remove them. It would need to go through all the pages in whatever spaces you wanted to apply the policy to.


Hope it helps you, Milan! smile
