In AEM content hierarchy, I have a folder in which I have 4000 pages. And out of these pages, 3700 pages are following the naming convention of xyz-1, xyz-2, xyz-3..uptill xyz-3700 like this. I have a requirement to delete these pages starting with "xyz" but not the other 300 pages which have different names. I have tried below command with *, but this doesn’t work. Can anybody help me here to get this resolved?

curl  -F":operation=delete" -F":applyTo=/content/foo/bar/xyz*" http://localhost:4502 -u admin:admin

As far as I can tell, the applyTo [1] will not work in this scenario (unless you want to list all the pages). I would suggest write a bash script that will loop through to delete these pages. [1] https://sling.apache.org/documentation/bundles/manipulating-content-the-slingpostservlet-servlets-po...
