Bulk search and edit


I have a question around functionality we need around bulk searching and replacing content across all models in a project.

On our current static site setup with GitHub, our SEO team quite often have to find certain phrases that occur throughout the content and do a bulk replacement through their code editor and then deploy that to GitHub.

I assume on DatoCMS we would need to use the API to do this? Is this functionality others have created before? Just wondering how straight forward this would be to implement?

Many thanks,

hello @jeff.knox

using our CMA you are able to update multiple records, but still you need to find them and implement the change in a script, not ideal for editors, unless you also build an interface on top of that.

So I think you can do that for sure, but would be useful to have this functionality in Dato itself. Maybe do you want to open a feature request for this here: https://community.datocms.com/c/feature-requests/22 ?

As soon as it gets some attention we’ll consider that for sure!

Cheers, I’ve added that to the feature requests :grinning:
