How to import a Confluence space from XML to Cloud for a space admin

I am a newly assigned admin for our Confluence space on cloud. I have a confluence space export (xml zip) that I have been asked to import into our local space. However, I am unable to find any option to do so. Have browsed through the community discussions, but none of the options seem to work for me. Please assist me with this. We are on the below version.

Confluence 1000.0.0-5994b986bf3c

I have checked the below link for clues, but I am unable to find the menu Settings > General ConfigurationBackup & Restore > Restore Confluence Data

Hi @Nilesh Bagwe 


You Only Admin Of That Space Only  You Don't have Confluence Admin Permission If You Have Confluence Admin Permission You Will Saw That import Option Otherwise It's Not Possible Go through This Link






Thanks a ton for the prompt response. I checked by clicking on the Confluence icon on the extreme left. I can see the menu, but no Settings icon. 


However, when I click on my specific space, I can see the Space Settings icon.  



I am part of the administrators group here. Does this mean, I am an admin only for the specific Confluence space ?

If I have to request my Confluence Administrator for rights, what exactly do I ask for ?

Also, is there any other way that I can import the pages from the other space export into mine, without the Confluence Administrator rights ?

Thanks again !

Hi @Nilesh Bagwe Y


You'll need to first click on the Confluence icon in the upper-left corner of the screen to expand the sidebar menu. If you are a Confluence Admin, then you should see the "Settings" menu option there.


If you do have the menu, it's just that you don't have access to the settings. You will need your site administrator to give you "Confluence Administrator" settings, or they can import the space for you. More information can be found here:
