We have an old Trac based wiki system for managing application documentation. Further were trying to identify ways to migrate the wiki documentation pages from Trac-Wiki (1.0.18 version) on to the Confluence (7.19.1 version) system.
Is there a way to do this automatically such that we are also able to migrate the child wiki pages as well?
[ About Trac: https://trac.edgewall.org/ ]
Well, 10 years ago when I did such a migration I used a tool called Universal Wiki Converter. It was working pretty well .. but that is no longer available and those where times that Confluence also used Wiki Markup.. I guess Trac is still using it, right?
Not sure if this would be easily possible right now without some specific development that would convert Trac markup to Confluence. Unless of course there is way to Export page from Trac in some other format.. Is there any? Maybe JSON?
Anyway development of a tool I think it is required. Maybe it would be good to put content automatically to Confluence using REST API
One of my colleagues did a migration with the UWC in the spring of '22!
They installed a really old version of Confluence, used https://github.com/AtlassianContribs/universal-wiki-converter to create the UWC, and imported from the other source (I'm not sure it was Trac, although I do know we were asked to import from Trac around then). Then they upgraded the Confluence to the version the client was on, and used space export/import to get the data in.
