Copy entire space to another without comments

Hi All,

we use a space template with default pages and hierarchy but also comments were added to the space. Now we would like to copy the entire space but without comments.

I found the Confluence Command Line Interface but we don't know how we can define that comments are not needed.

Thanks in advance!

Hi Rumi,

have a look at the copy space plugin:

Maybe this can help you

Best regards


copySpace from the Confluence Command Line Interface has options to copyComments. By default they are not copied.

Hi Bob,

can I have +1 question?

I never used CLI before, can you please review whether this code is correct?

@echo off
rem remember the directory path to this bat file
set dirPath=%~dp0

rem need to reverse windows names to posix names by changing \ to /
set dirPath=%dirPath:\=/%
rem remove blank at end of string
set dirPath=%dirPath:~0,-1%

rem - Customize for your installation, for instance you might want to add default parameters like the following:
rem   java -jar "%dirPath%"/lib/confluence-cli-2.5.0.jar --server http://my-server --user automation --password automation %*

java -jar http://<MY_CONFLUENCE>

confluence --action copySpace --space "<SPACEKEY1>" --newSpace "<SPACEKEY2>"

rem Exit with the correct error level.

Many thanks!


No. Only customize the bat file to add your server address, userid, and password. Do not put actions in it! Run your action from the command line using the bat file: confluence --action copySpace ... Or don't change the bat file and always use ate server, user, and password directly on the command line.
