Dear Kyrylo,

You could use a tabular CSV or Excel to import alot of data. Is this an option?

can you provide more details?

Dear Kyrylo,

You could for example copy all the data from your Excel sheet into a Confluence page.

For CSV you would need This plugin

That add-on will make it possible to enter data using comma seperated values (CSV).

You can also import data to Confluence using other ways;

Friendly Regards,


so ... Atlassian team removed absolutely simple and good syntax.

And asking me to use a plugin?

I need to spend a working day to only ask permission to setup plugin.

I really prefer to use built in features, like syntax. I can parse text to any format.

Dear Kyrylo,

I do not believe that Atlassian has removed any syntax. There are different ways for importing data into confluence, and the CSV plugin is one of them. But like I stated, there are many ways to do so.. and you can find them all in the documentation that I linked you.

Thank you for afford with link. But this is useless one.

 so ... i created a new doc, copy-pasted table from exel. And yes ... it worked. 

>Import web content

>Import other content
4 times no

And again. Syntax is not working anymore.
