Twiki to Confluence - cross reference links

Jobin Kuruvilla [Go2Group] Community Leader Nov 28, 2011

While migrating from Twiki to Confluence, Is there any way to convert links pointing to another space?

For example, in Twiki there are two webs, WEB1 and WEB2. In WEB1, there is a link pointing to a page in WEB2 as follows:

[[WEB2.Link1][Some Link]]

This should be converted to

[Some Link|W2:Link1]

where W2 is the space key for WEB2 space in confluence. But right now, the links points to Create page action in WEB2 space!

The mapping of WEB1 to W1 and WEB2 to W2 is present in the property file but only spaceKey W1 can be entered in the converter while converting.

Is there anyway to achieve the above?

Couldn't find any existing properties, so added a new cleaner class to handle cross references. Works fine now!

Just for future ref for other users, I would have thought the web to spacekey map properties would have handled that. The intent is for that map to handle links and image references across spaces.

I was thinking the same. had that mapping but it didn't work. No sure if it was because some other configuration was missing or not!
