I'm trying to create a new space from an exported space zip file. I'm following all the steps and I'm getting this error:
"Could not locate exportDescriptor.properties in the archive"
I changed the Key in both the XML and properties file from the archive, zipped the archive using Terminal since I'm on a Mac, but I still get this error.
If anyone know how to successfully export a space and create a new space via import space, please let me know.
I just tried this out real quick on macOS 10.14 to see what the zip utility was doing. I was successful in getting it to compress and upload:
zip -r import.zip ./
This was executed inside the unzipped folder. Trying at the higher directory and unzipping the file didn't work, because it zipped the folder (and not the contents of the folder). If the Confluence importer doesn't find the exportDescriptor.properties file at the root of the zip file (not in a folder), it will throw that error.
Hope that helps, but let me know if there's more to the error you're seeing if you've tried zipping from inside the folder!
