Confluence to MadCap Flare

Is anyone using Confluence for authoring and MadCap Flare for publishing the final output? If so, what output format is being generated from Confluence and what process is being followed to import the files to MadCap Flare?

I recently migrated source files from Confluence to Madcap Flare.

Sharing the steps I followed:

1) Export Confluence files in HTML format using Content tool.

2) Import these HTML files using Madcap Flare import option.

3) Open and clean-up every HTML file for unwanted tags and incorrect formatting.

Note: Based on my experience, import took just a couple of minutes but the clean-up part took most of the time. Many Confluence tags had to be removed, cross-references were broken and formatting had to be updated as per the new template. Almost the same effort as writing a new manual :)Please check other online forums as well.

Yes, it would be better to forget exports and just stick with Confluence.
