How to bulk create pages

Ben Weinberg December 14, 2021


We need to create 190 pages in our Confluence. All the pages will use the same template, but will have a different title based on their company name.

Is there anyway I could create these pages in bulk?

Yes, it is not obvious, but create a dummy Word doc, with all your heading 1s as your child page titles, then Heading 2s and grand children. Then when you do a Word file import, set break on Heading 2s. And boom, you have a ton of pages.

Tried this today and was unsuccessful. When I imported the document, I didn't get the options from Henry's link. Could anyone elaborate on the steps or if there's been a change to Confluence cloud that requires modification of the instructions? Thanks

I guess mapping h1 and h2's isn't possible anymore :/
