Importing Content Into Confluence

This page describes how to get text, pages, images and other content into Confluence, by converting the content from another storage format and importing it into the Confluence wiki.

Importing content from other Confluence sites

For content originating from other Confluence sites, you can:

  • Import an entire Confluence site into a new site.
  • Import a space from one Confluence site into another. Page history, attachments, and page content will be preserved and you will be able to do multiple pages at once. The drawbacks are that it may be inconvenient if the Confluence versions differ, and you cannot have a duplicate space key on the destination instance.

Importing content from a Microsoft Word document

The Office Connector in Confluence allows you to import a Word document into Confluence. The document's content is copied onto one or more Confluence pages. See Importing a Word Document into Confluence.

Importing web content

Here are some options for importing or displaying web content on a Confluence page:

  • Use the Widget Connector Macro to display videos, slide shows, twitter chats, documents and more, sourced from other web sites and displayed on your Confluence page.

Importing other non-wiki content

Importing non-wiki markup into Confluence requires a conversion process:

  • Text with basic formatting can be pasted directly into the editor. This includes simple Word documents or web pages.

  • Confluence pages saved to disk can be imported from disk

  • Files can be uploaded in bulk using the Confluence WebDav Plugin

  • Full featured customisation is available using the Confluence remote APIs.
