Hey Leanne,

I'm not aware of any plugins that would do this, but there are ways to run an external tool that will check your Confluence system for link integrity.

One of our former Technical writers wrote a python script to do this: http://blogs.atlassian.com/2011/12/scanning-confluence-for-content-errors/

This same question is also asked here, and has some other answers: https://answers.atlassian.com/questions/46717/is-there-any-way-to-run-a-report-of-internal-broken-links-in-confluence?page=1#47371

Thanks Joseph, I have passed on to our technical area.

No problem! Please report back if this approach was successful or not :-)

Hi Leanne,

Have you simply tried "Undefined Pages" in your Space Admin? It tells you the pages which are linked to but don't exist. Of course, it doesn't display the list of external broken links.
