Copying an entire space in Confluence- including all child pages and page content

How do you copy an entire space in Confluence- including all child pages and page content? I want an exact replica of the space with all its content. (It is okay to not have comments included in the copy).

Check out some of the solutions at https://confluence.atlassian.com/confkb/how-to-copy-or-rename-a-space-in-confluence-169578.html

I have used Copy Space, successfully, a few times.

@Jobin Kuruvilla [Go2Group] does Copy Space retain the content on each page and child page within the space that's being copied?

It includes pages but not history. Blog posts are not included.

Atlassian recently marked this as Fixed in Confluence 6.0 so we'll have it natively soon! smile

https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONF-2814

Confluence Command Line Interface (CLI) has the copySpace action which would be a good solution if you wanted to do this in automation.

For this case we developed 'Space Admin for Confluence' which allows:

  • copying pages and spaces  (with attachements, childpages, comments, labels & permissions)
  • ordering pages using drag & drop
  • comparing pages
  • managing permissions
  • deleting page trees and much more

I've made a PowerShell script that does most of the work for solution 3.

Available on GitHub:

https://gist.github.com/mfaux/481d53c80408334cbdc825f0f510b977

We have released a solution which can copy desired page tree or whole space to a new space.
