There's a bit of a jump when you move from Sharepoint to Confluence.
The reason I say that is that the two systems are really aimed at two different approaches to presenting information to users. Sharepoint is very much towards doing things as a "Document management system", whereas Confluence is far closer to a "wiki" than anything else. Sharepoint presents information contained mostly in discrete document objects, whereas Confluence throws up pages directly and expects the users to update them directly. Some of the concepts simply do not translate between the systems - they're not useful in the context.
So, to answer the questions as best I can
Hi Nic, I'm facing a similar issue of migrating files & libraries from Sharepoint to Confluence, and it seems that most of the solutions out there are more concerned about moving from Confluence to Sharepoint and not vice-versa. What I'm essentially looking for is a tool to easily convert all the stored Sharepoint files into Confluence via formatted pages, using the Blank page template, into a page tree.
I did a very basic one of these a while ago - a simple script that found every document in a (doesn't)Sharepoint, ran <something> over it to convert it to moderately simple text, and then create it as a page over the SOAP interface. Confluence uses REST now, so nowadays, I'd use that. The <something> was the fiddly part - we had a proper developer put together something that did that (and logged errors or complexities that it could not handle) - my scripts just ran it.
Nic, I'd like more info on:
"SharePoint Lists and Libraries
Not exactly the same functionality, but you can build something a lot like it (and it tends to be more flexible and accessible for the users to build their own)"
If you can share more on what you mean and how to achieve this. We're just getting started with Confluence.
