Apply blueprint to existing space



There is any way to apply a blueprint to an existing space? I'm importing several spaces from a different Confluence Server and I want to apply the styles that I defined for this new instance..


Edit.. @Nic Brough [Adaptavist]

Hi Nic.

My scenario.

Confluence Server A - Spaces created with custom blueprint and styles.. The spaces don't have any content yet

Confluence Server B - A basic Confluence with the same spaces that Server A but full of content.

I would like to move the content from Server B to Server A but keeping the style applied by the blueprint.

I tried to copyPage with CLI but the pages keep the style from the Server B.. I would like to copy the content with the new styles defined in the server A.

No.  Blueprints and templates are a way to pre-fill something a user then expands on.  They're not guides for updating existing pages or spaces, they're used on creation and that's it.

Thanks for your quick response @Nic Brough [Adaptavist]

So, the only way is edit the entities.xml and edit the blueprints before the import ?

Sorry, I don't understand what you're doing.  A blueprint is used to create a space or set of pages, and a template to create a page.  That has nothing to do with importing spaces from other systems - an import imports content from elsewhere.  I don't know what you're doing with entities.xml at all.
