Any way to change Creator name on ALL Confluence pages?

We have a user that is no longer here at our company. But majority of the pages are assigned to this user. And our upper management would want it changed over to someone else. There must be a way to do this.....? Someone please help.


Or provide a working SQL query code.

@SidYes I tried following this exact guide.


I tried to run:

update content set creator = (select user_key from user_mapping where lower_username = '<newlowerusername>') 
 where creator = (select user_key from user_mapping where lower_username = '<oldlowerusername>');


But it gives me an error: 

Msg 208, Level 16, State 1, Line 1
Invalid object name 'content'.

@SidAny reply on this? We can't figure out how to change all the old user to the new user in one go.
