I see a few older threads about migrating from MediaWiki -> Confluence
however, nothing is too recent or active.
How do we go about doing this now? Am I missing something simple?
You're not missing something simple, sadly. This is a super common question, and one that has a few answers. Check out these threads:
Basically, you can use either an HTML dump from MediaWiki, or use the deprecated UWC and hope that it mostly works. I wish there was a better solution, but there are so many variations of wikis out there, there's no one size fits all solution.
Yeah, this does take some work. I have done it recently for a client. To do intelligently, you also need to convert any MediaWiki templates to Confluence macros to save on manual work later, which also implies creating some user macros for the mapping. It takes time, but reduces user anxiety over moving to Confluence. You should set aside about 80+ man-hours for the task.
