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.

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 embed 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.
  • Embed an external web page into Confluence with the HTML Include macro
  • Use HTML code in a page with the HTML macro

Note: The HTML macro is not enabled in all sites. Talk to your Confluence Admin about whether you can use this macro. 

Importing content from another wiki

Confluence does not provide a method for importing content from another wiki. 

You may be able to build your own import solution using our REST APIs, as mentioned below, or work with an Atlassian Solution Partner to develop a custom solution. 

Import other content

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

Migrate to Confluence Cloud

If you're migrating from Confluence Server to Confluence Cloud, you can use the Confluence Cloud Migration Assistant to migrate your content and spaces.
