I've just used a add-on to import a couple of hundred HTML files from another CMS to Confluence. The author of the pages was set by the add-on to be "Confluence Pandoc Connect." I would really like to be able to set these to the name of the person that actually created them, but there doesn't seem to be a straightforward way to do this. Am I missing something?
This is not currently possible, but we have this feature request for it:
The workaround listed is not available for Cloud, but you may be able to do it first on a Server instance.
If you have any questions, please let me know.
Thanks, Shannon. We have a server instance we use for internal docs. The problem now is: the article with the workaround says simply "Run this SQL query against your database..." How does one do that? A Google Search turns up a bunch of different approaches, some of which involve buying an add-on, which I'd rather not do.
As Nic said, you can find the server info minus the password to connect. You may have luck asking your server administration team and they may have access to the database to connect.
If you have any trouble do let us know and we can advise you.
Yikes, this whole workaround just gets nastier and nastier. I can easily export the space from my cloud instance, but can't seem to import it into the on-premise instance. From looking at the docs, there's this:
I tried to do what it described but I get this message after a couple of minutes:
Import failed. Check your server logs for more information. Error putting scheduler on standby just prior to backup restore. Please wait a few minutes before trying again. If this error persists, please try restarting the server.
Can you clarify what you've done so far? It's unclear which step you're on as there wasn't a step to import a space into Server:
Could you let me know where in this process you are?
Well, I had already imported the original source files into the cloud instance, as you may recall from my initial post here, and had already been arranging and organizing them. I assumed that the step "Import HTML Files into Server instance" could be accomplished by exporting the files from the cloud instance and importing them into the on-prem server instance. But I could not get the import step to work, so that's where I'm stuck.
I see. Thank you for clarifying, Alan! I think that should work, too.
Have you seen this article?
It has a way to fix the issue but if it doesn't apply to your case, could you have a look at your Confluence Server logs in your Confluence home directory: /logs/atlassian-confluence.log? You should see further error details about what exactly is failing in the import.
Please feel free to provide the relevant lines here.
