Hi Hisamitsu,

I suggest to simply move all the pages on the root-level to the other space. In this way you move all the sub-pages also to the other space.

You mean I can move all the pages on the root-level to the other space by one operation / task?

Could you provide me with more detailed indo, please?

In short: you can.

BUT: If we talk about thousands of pages with attachments and so on, it might be a good idea to split the move action in smaller pieces, as you will run into timeouts if you try to move large amounts of pages.

My advice here: Get an overview of the amount of pages over all and try to identify the sections you can move including all sub-pages. Depending on the size of your space this could be several 10 equal sections. It is hard to give you a specific number, as this is related to the over-all performance of your system and the size of your pages and attachments. You can start moving smaller pieces of 10-20 pages and then increase the number of pages.

@Hisamitsu Koga -

Benjamin's advice is good. Please also consider that to move all the pages from one space to another, you will need to:

  1. have "remove" permissions in the original space – moving a page or its attachment(s) in Confluence-world is the same as deleting it
  2. check that none of the pages  have editing restrictions (if you cannot edit the page, you cannot move it) 

 

Hi Hisamitsu,

I suggest you to export and import back the site following the following KB https://confluence.atlassian.com/confcloud/import-a-confluence-space-724765531.html

 

Cheers

But then you will not end up with one space with the merged content...
