Is there a replacement for UWC?

I'd love to move things from my mediawiki to confluence, but the main known tool to do it, UWC, isn't merely deprecated, it's considered dangerous.

Is this Atlassian's last stand on conversion, or is something else in the works?

Well, especially for Confluence Cloud, there is a new addon, Confluence Pandoc Connect:

https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/com.atlassian.confluence.pandocconnect/cloud/overview

which can convert MediaWiki to Confluence Markup.

The problem is that it does not yet support multiple files at a time. However, it is open source and currently under active development, so hopefully soon!

So, here is a very awkward way around the issue. It might actually work. Use the UWC to convert into a trial copy of Confluence 4.0. Then upgrade it to the latest version. Next do and export of the trial wiki and then import into cloud.

Hi @Hack Saw Did you find a solution in the end and share your experience?
