I'm trying to copy a space from an old instance of Confluence Cloud to a new one. A space with the key already exists so I get an error when I try to import the zip file.
I found an article that said I could edit the exportDescriptor.properties file, and I've done that. However, I'm on a Mac so zipping the file with the built-in zip tool doesn't work. All of the kb articles I've found on Atlassian's site only say to restore the downloaded zip from the trash, but, obviously, that doesn't include my edit. What application can I use on a Mac to zip the edited files so I can import the space to our new Confluence Cloud instance?
I was able to do this using the built in Mac zipping function, without needing to find a 3rd party zip app.
For it to work, after editing the exportDescriptor.properties file I had to compress the three items inside the "Confluence-space-export...xml" folder, rather than the folder itself:
This creates a file called Archive.zip, which (for me at least) imported OK, with the new space key I set in exportDescriptor.properties.
Hopefully that will work for you and save you the hassle of finding a different tool.
