Import Content Into Confluence

There are a number of ways you can get existing content, such as text, images and other content into Confluence. 

Import content from other Confluence sites

To import content from another Confluence site you can:

  • Import a backup of the entire Confluence site
  • Import an XML export of an individual space. Page history, attachments, and page content will be preserved. 

On this page:

See Restoring a Site and Restoring a Space for more information.

Import content from a Microsoft Word document

The Office Connector allows you to create pages by importing Word documents. The document content is copied onto one or more Confluence pages. See Import a Word Document into Confluence.

Import web content

To displaying web content on a 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.

Import other 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 APIs.
