Hey Umer,

We have had to do this several times, and we've found that the business rules & requirements are trickier than the eventual writing of the migration scripts.

Most of the complexity comes with dealing with links, attachments and where (space/page hierarchy) you want your pages to land in Confluence.

If you have very few links or attachments, and are willing to do manual cleanup after the fact, then looping over your pages and wrapping them in one of these macros as you call the create content API will get you most of the way there:

Usually we see this done with some kind of CSV that maps source and target locations.

If you want to have your content converted to native Confluence storage format, check out this plugin, which can do that (disclaimer, my team wrote it!)

Good luck!
