Use space export to export the personal space to xml and import into the new instance. Note that both instances must be the same version.
Thank you, Bhushan. I was able to backup my own personal space from the source instance and restore it on the target instance. However, I had to delete my personal space on the target site first. Do you know if this can be automated or simplified? This approach seems to require each user export their own space. Thanks again!
Could you please provide some more info on what type of migration you are trying to perform?
Are you migrating a whole confluence instance to a new server?
Are you migrating selected spaces from an existing instance to a new instance?
Please provide as much info as possible
We are migrating many (not all) spaces from an old Confluence server to another, running instance. We have a plan for exporting and importing the global spaces. We are trying to figure out how to most easily migrate the users' personal spaces.
We are NOT migrating an entire confluence site to a new server. Too bad, because that sounds pretty easy. :)
Some users have identically named accounts on both instances, so they may have existing personal spaces on the target machine.
It looks like the import/restore space feature is only available to admins. Is there some way a normal (non-admin) user can import into their own personal space?
We are migrating our Confluence from one site to another. Instead of an admin migrating every user's personal space we would prefer to have the users export and import their own space. Can this be done? My question is only in regards to personal spaces; other spaces have been migrated by an admin.
