How to import pages with markdown format into Confluence?

Hi All - 

We have an external application "moinmo" having some 1000+ pages stored in markdown format.

Due to outage of license we want to migrate these pages to my already up and running confluence instance (sever instance). 

My question is - Do confluence support markdown format file while importing pages to the site? 

If yes, how to do this? Please help me over this.

 

Thanks

Chandra

Hi @Chandra Sekhar pydi RAJU boni 👋

Welcome to the Community! This is certainly possible with Confluence Wiki Markup...

Confluence supports inserting content in markdown. This is often used in ReadMe files. See Markdown syntax guide for some examples of markdown syntax.

To insert markdown in the editor:

  1. Choose Insert > Markup
  2. Select Markdown
  3. Type or paste your text - the preview will show you how it will appear on your page
  4. Choose Insert.

As with wiki markup, Confluence will convert your markdown to the rich text editor format. You will not be able to edit your content using markdown.

I hope this helps but if you have any other questions just ask away 😃

All the best,

Laura

Hi @Laura Holton - 

Thanks for your quick reply.

We have this 1k+ pages and they will be exported as markdown file.

It means all these 1k+ pages will be scripted in one single markdown file and these markdown file is to be imported into our confluence.

 

So, i'm looking for this process.

Thanks

Chandra

Hi @Laura Holton

I tried follow the "Insert > Markup" yet I see nothing. Where should I find it?

Thanks.

P.S. This is the screenshot

Had the same issue finding this.

@max_fung That page was for Confluence V4 and seems we are in V5 now. So it doesn't apply. I found two ways to do it:

- Generate a rich text (like VScode preview, the built-in one is fine here, or simply an HTML), then copy the rich text to the confluence. This would keep most of the format. 
- Or use https://marketplace.atlassian.com/apps/1211438/markdown-macro-for-confluence?hosting=cloud&tab=pricing (I didn't test yet)

Hi @Chandra Sekhar pydi RAJU boni

This is possible using the markup macro and then inserting a markdown. Here are the instructions:   https://confluence.atlassian.com/doc/confluence-wiki-markup-251003035.html

Regards

@Fabian Lim ,

Hi - THis is useful but not in my case.

I want to import pages using a markdown format file not to insert things in confluence pages in markdown format.

Please suggest in that.

Thanks for your link and help

Chandra
