Restoring a site - how is that done currently?

Tommy Poulsen February 2, 2024

Hi all

In my company we are using Confluence and Jira intensely - all hosted on the cloud. 

[UPDATED] Our export is approx. 10GB and the xml size limit of 200MB is exceeded (900MB), so there seem to be no actual way of restoring a full backup. 

Restoring individual spaces does not backup users etc, so it's not a real option, as I see it.

We used to conduct regular backup and restore tests of the full Confluence site, but now I'm really struggling with doing a restore. The site exports seems to be working ok. All documentation on refers to a "Site import" but that does not seem to be available at our restore site. Exporting/importing individual spaces is not really an option, as we have a lot of spaces.

So - am I missing something, or how do I do a full site restore test?

Thanks for responding @Brant Schroeder  My request is for disaster recovery- we are manufacturing medical device products and Confluence is currently a core tool in our setup

@Tommy Poulsen I believe if you are doing a full site restore you would need to follow the instructions here in the migration documentation.  https://support.atlassian.com/confluence-cloud/docs/merge-multiple-confluence-cloud-sites/

Thanks.

I forgot to mention: our export is approx 10GB and the xml size limit is exceeded, so there seem to be no actual way of restoring a full backup. 

Restoring individual spaces does not backup users etc, so it's not a real option, as I see it.

So - is it really true that a full backup and restore is not possible?

@Tommy Poulsen If you have a large instance like that then it does exceed the full backup size that you would be able to restore.  Since you are on a cloud product I am just wondering what you are trying to do.  Are you planning on migrating to a new instance or is this for DR?

Since it is cloud here is some great information about DR and data security.
