Hi @Dylan Colantuoni !

As I see the current situation, your space import from Confluence Server to Cloud has failed. With this in mind, I have to ask a few questions:

  1. What is the size (In Mega Bytes or Giga Bytes) of your XML file?
  2. From what version of Confluence Server does this XML file come from?

We a document that tackles Server to Cloud Migration. We highly recommend that you take a look at it. Here it goes:

Also, for you to be able to use the Migration Assistant, you need to be on one of the supported versions of Confluence:

Also, we have a Knowledge base articles that deals with situations similar to yours:


I hope this helps! Let us hear from you.
