I uploaded and restored a Confluence space from Production environment of Wiki version 5.0.3 to Quality environment of Wiki version 5.0.3. The import worked just fine (100% and complete). But I am not able to find the space from the application.
I tried flushing the cache, but No changes!
I followed the procedure to import the space is:
Still I am not able to see the space in application.
One thing you also might want to consider (that we ran into while doing a migration): sometimes the permission scheme of an imported space does not have the necessary permissions set. Therefore, the only way to find the space is to log in with a user who is a member of the "confluence-administrators" group. Then you can set the proper permissions and the space will be visible.
To hop onto Stephen's answer, if you're an administrator you can Recover Space Permissions by going to the Space Permissions within Confluence. This way you'll be able to see any you don't currently have access to see in the list of spaces.
I had migrated the Wiki Space from production environment to Quality environment. After building the index, I can see all the spaces which I have migrated but regarding the permissions, I cannot see the owner of the space and the users of the space.
We have 2 groups for the spaces like Owner group and also Users group for the related spaces. I am not able to see the groups. Can you please help me how to get the permissions migrated.
When you migrate a space, it keeps the original permissions so if the users and groups don't exist on the new space then you might run into an issue.
When you say you cannot see the groups, can you let us know what you mean by that? When you have clicked Recover Permissions you should be able to access the space permissions under Space Tools and change the permissions this way.
Can you tell us what problems you're running into when you do this? Feel free to share screenshots.
The groups need to exist in the target instance prior to importing the space. Otherwise they won't come along with the import.
Can you confirm that you still have the issue when you create the groups first and then import the space?
Apologies, from your last message it sounded like you had already created the groups in the target instance after importing the space.
In order to create the groups in Confluence, this would depend on your Confluence version, but in the latest server version you are able to do so under General Configuration > Groups. This requires you to be an administrator.
Once you add the groups, then you can attempt re-imort of the space.
The index must be built before the space will be available.
If you unchecked "Build Index" when you imported, then you need to run the Rebuild Content Indexing function found in the general configuration section of Confluence.
