Continued Error During Import

I have tried multiple times to import a rather large file in to Confluence (7.13.2).  I have gone through the task of remapping all users to their new User ID within the new Confluence instance.  It continually fails at 40% import.  Unfortunately I cannot figure out where in the import xml file the error resides.  This is the error I continue to get:

Import failed. Check your server logs for more information. com.atlassian.confluence.importexport.ImportExportException: Unable to complete import: Error while importing backup: RuntimeException occurred while performing an XHTML storage transformation (com.atlassian.confluence.content.render.xhtml.XhtmlException: com.atlassian.confluence.content.render.xhtml.XhtmlException: Missing required attribute: {}username)

I tried to Google this error but I am not finding anything worth while to help me with the error.  ANy help would be appreciated.

Hi @Robert W_ Olsen ,


Perhaps to check back on the user mapping to see something was missed since what's mentions is missing require attribute in username.


If no issues there, I would recommend opening a support ticket with Atlassian to investigate further:
