Import an XML file to Confluence

Tal Ben Avram April 10, 2022

Hi, everyone,

I would love to know how to import an XML file into Confluence and whether there is a space limit in terms of the weight of the file.

Thank you very much for your help

Thank you! @Srinatha T 

Unfortunately, this didn't help, because I am trying to import an XML file that isn't in the confluence space.

How can I import these files? What are the actions?

The Backup and Restore option is not available under General Configuration.

How can I move this file to a new space I've created?

Similar issue.

I have an xml file that was exported from another application. It contains data I would like to start to manage using confluence (i.e. migrating this data from a rigid application to confluence, where we can define our own workflow).

I would like to import this file into a confluence space, creating page property macro tables with the data it contains. This is not practical to do by hand, since I anticipate 100's of pages created from this xml file.

How can I do this? I can write code to read/write/modify the xml file to whatever format confluence would require for import, but I need to understand that format and how to perform the import.

As a proof of concept, I was able to convert the xml file into an MS Word document and then import that into confluence, but there is no way to specify page property macros in MS Word.

Has anyone found a solution?

Not yet. I intend to explore possibilities, such as using a REST API, but this would be a lot of work and I have not had the time...
