Is it possible to restore a selected spaces from full Confluence Backup


I am looking to the possibility to restore a single or multiple spaces from other Confluence full XML backup.

Any other way than restoring full backup to the staging server and then exporting and importing each required space separately?

JIRA has a functionality of importing selected projects from full backup...

I think the only way would be to go through the xml and delete all the spaces you don't want imported from the backup XML, but I think the solution you wrote is probably better and safer. 

Just upload it to a staging instance, or local instance if you have the SDK installed, and just export the specific spaces you want to bring over. 



Hi I was thinking the same way. Thanks
