How migrate data from Community Forums to Confluence Questions

Hi Beecom

As you know, Community Forums is an add-on from Adaptavist and provides forum functionality in Confluence pages.
Our Forums add-on uses Confluence pages, whilst Questions stores questions as a different entity objects. As such, you will retain your Community Forum topics as Confluence pages after your Community Forums license expires - as you would with normal Confluence Page. Questions is slightly different and only provides access whilst you retain a valid license. Both products are great for their purpose and it depends on which will meet your organisations needs.
There is currently no simple way to migrate Forum topics to Confluence Questions as they are handled differently within Confluence and Atlassian has not as yet provided an easy way to migrate pages into Confluence Questions. Atlassian are currently evaluating introducing a Rest API for Questions, as outlined in the Questions FAQ.
If migrating your pages into Questions is a priority, you can contact our sales team who will be happy to discuss this as a professional services engagement.
Disclaimer: I am an Adaptavist employee and work as the Product Owner for Community Forums. If you’d like to discuss your use of Forums further, please feel free to contact myself @  
Kind Regards,

UWC doesn't work with anything newer than Confluence 4.
