I have copied a page tree to another space. How should i change author name now?

I have copied an entire page tree to another space in confluence. How should I change the author name from Copy page tree to my name?

You can change the author by using the 'Change Content Author' script with a added CQL clause: "creator = user1 and type = page and space = SPAC3"

This will select all the pages in the space with spacekey SPAC3 and author user1, substitute the values as required. You can then change the author by specifying the user name in the 'Author' field of the script.


Please use the preview button first to ensure you are only changing the desired content.
