Automatically PDF Export

Hi All,

is there any possibility to export a page or a complete space in .pdf format automatically, for example every day/week???

Its important for the administators, because the documentations about our database system is in confluence. so if we got database failure, we can't use confluence and read our documentations.

To export the pages (spaces) manually is not comfortable enough for us.

Best regards,

You can do it (for a page export) via an external script and accessing confluence via HTTP requests.

wget http://servername/spaces/flyingpdf/pdfpageexport.action?pageId=xxxx -O mypage.pdf

Where xxx is your known page ID. You could probably do the same via a space export to PDF. I've got it on my "to-do" list to create something like this but via a plugin.

@bhushan - The backups are certainly something you should do but are not a great stratgey here. WHat if COnfluence is down because the databases are down? You can't restore a backup to a system if there is no working system. You'd have to install a new DB, restore DB, repoint confluence & read data. Not easy to do if they data centre had been disabled.

Exporting to a PDF is safer because it can be stored locally or on redudancy file storage

The space export isn't quite so simple as it requires an atl token. You'd have to login & get a token back to do this the same way


Confluence Command Line Interface has the exportSpace action that support PDF or other forms. Automate using a job scheduler or, even better, using Bamboo and CLI Plugin for Bamboo.

Hi Ramin,

Do you have a backup strategy in place? If your database fails, you really should be able to recover your whole instance of confluence from a previous xml backup.

Wouldn't it be nice to have this Jira-Confluence integration?

...onfluence space permissions for the moment. Even if that possibility became true in a not too far future, project/space access would be left in the hands of all team members. Don't get me wrong: I'd love t...
