Questions: answers are not imported


i have a mid Problem:

I exportet a complete space via full xml-export.

Then i copied the space via "copy page tree" into another space and deleted the space.

I found out, that the questions where not copied, so i imported the space again (via general > restore/backup) and it completed successfully.

BUT in the "Questions" the Answers to the Questions are missing. All Questions where exported and imported, but not the Answers!

Can i find the answers somewhere in the xml-Backup?

Thank you in advance

Hey VB,

I've opened a bug report about it. As you can see it's still open so I suggest voting that ticket in order to expedite its resolution.



thank you!

Can i somehow extract the answers from the export? I have the "entities.xml" (didn't found it there) and the subfolders (the contained files are not readable)

Hey VB, I only found the answers in the DB but not in the Confluence's files. Not sure if its feasible to export the answers from the "previous" DB and import in the "NEW" DB.
