Migrate data from Jive to Confluence

We currently use Jive to co-located documents, blogs, and discussions. Jive is garbage.

I've convinced several people to try Confluence and they love it. Now they would like a quick way to migrate the information they have in Jive 4.0 to Confluence.

Has anyone had experience doing this?

Hey Daniel,

We have a documentation about importing content from another wiki into Confluence, and also a specific page about importing from Jive, as follow the links:

Importing content from another Wiki: https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Importing+Content+from+Another+Wiki

Importing content from Jive: https://migrations.atlassian.net/wiki/display/UWC/UWC+Jive+Notes

Please, have a look on these documents and feel free to ask anything you want here. :)

Best regards,

Thank you so much for this. I guess I didn't search hard enough in the confluence knowledge base.

I took a quick look, and from reading the reviews on the UWC's marketplace page (https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/com.atlassian.uwc), it sounds like the "import from another wiki" functionality is now provided within the latest version Confluence as an admin tool. Given this, does anyone know if the UWC Jive Notes instructions referred to above are still valid for this? I found the latest docs on importing into Confluence (at https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Importing+Content+Into+Confluence), but couldn't find docs for importing from a Wiki on this latest version of Confluence. Thanks

@Andrew Fisher,

The comment on https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/com.atlassian.uwc that says there's a "import from another wiki" option in the admin console is mis-represented. That option has been in Confluence for years and when you try it, you will see that it points you to the UWC code (https://bitbucket.org/appfusions/universal-wiki-converter ) and documentation (https://migrations.atlassian.net/wiki/display/UWC/Universal+Wiki+Converter).

Meanwhile, AppFusions does support Confluence migrations and has helped many customers, both large and small, with success (and reference-able accounts). 

If anyone is interested in working with AppFusions to help bring the Wiki migration program to a new level, we are hiring. Please contact at info@appfusions.com. It's a great job for a developer that wants to get deeper into Atlassian technologies and bring their career up a giant leap; you will learn a ton.


As for Jive and Confluence, there is another option besides migrating that is sometimes less politically jarring: http://www.appfusions.com/display/JRA2JV/Immersive+for+Confluence,+in+Jive  (yet it is for Jive 7+ cloud, hosted, on-premise)
