How to export a space using SQL query

How to export a space using SQL query


Hello @Hayath Khan K ,

Confluence's spatial export is based on XML, HTML and PDF. I don't understand what you mean by SQL querie.


Hi ollie,

if there are 100 + spaces which needs to be exported in Confluence since the above step is manual and take a lot of time to complete . Please let me know how to export a space using SQL query ?




Hi @Hayath Khan K ,

It looks like this is an unreleased feature, you can vote for it.

Export/import Space Tool

You can "export" a space by cross referencing the bodycontent, space and content tables.  It will be utterly useless to you though, as you'll lose the metadata that makes it into a space, can't be used to create another Confluence space and leave you with the internal markup rather than useful content, and you'll lose all the structure

SQL is the worst possible thing you can do here.  You really need to use the XML, HTML and PDF methods if you want usable output.

We do not recommend exporting a space via a SQL dump. Please use the built in XML exporter which will pull in all the required entities along with the dump.

If you need to migrate a larger site and are encountering errors during the export, please contact support, they are well versed in those sort of problems.

Thanks again for using Confluence!
