For what it's worth, I'm with Rahul and Andy on this - dropping any tables out is asking for failure. You need to understand what they all are before you try anything like this, and even then it's likely that the simple rule is that you should take everything, exactly as it is now.

Hi Tousif

I would not recommend being selective in migrating the database tables.

If i were you i would migrate the entire database schema (all tables). if at all any table is generated by confluence itself then it will be overwritten anyway.


hey thank's rahul.

last time we had whole table data migration we found lot of issues while restarting confluence application from index table.

please refer below link.

I agree with Rahul, migration of selected tables is just asking for brain damage in your confluence data. AO data storage is per-plugin so unless you know intimately every plugins schema usages, not migrating them is effectively going to result in the relateed plugin failing, so don't do that.

If you are migrating databases and per-space export/import is not an option... then, you must do a full schema migration, it is non trivial. I have done this once from DB2/win32 to Postgresql/linux, the tool for the job was Talend.

thank you andy.
