I am currently working on a project that involves converting much of our tech support documentation into confluence. This involves copying scripts over, .jars, and thing of that nature.
It seems like it would be cumbersome to just add our scripts (.txt format) as attachments to confluence.
I would think this would be a regular use of confluence and would appreciate if anyone could point me in the direction of a format to go off of.
Documentation is definitely one of the core uses for Confluence. Check out Developing Technical Documentation on Confluence as a guide. Also, Sarah Maddox, one of our Technical Writers, has a book on the subject!
As for copying, there are a couple tools to start with. The Universal Wiki Converter will convert content from another Wiki, but I think you really want the rest API, the command line interface, or possibly the SOAP API. The CLI is particularly user-friendly (as far as command line utilities go!) but if you want your own integration points, look at the rest or soap api's.
