export a single page to xml and import it in another Wiki


We have a page which I exported via the Space admin - Operations - XML custom xml export. Now I want to import this page on another Wiki on another location into a Space with the exact same space key name.

Basically I made the page remotely in an offline version and want to send it via email to the operational version. On the export side I can exactly mark which page(s) I want to export but on the import side on the other Wiki I fail to find this import functionality. It's possible to import a complete back-up but importing/adding a single page in .xml isn't?

Any idea how I can get around this?

I don't think you can restore to an existing space - see note 3 from restoring a space.

What you are trying to do is simple using the Confluence Command Line Interface and the copyPage action with targetServer and related parameters.

Hi Bob,

Thanks for your answer.

Although the CLI method is probably great but for occasional imports with basic end users it's over the top. It also acquires an additional license.

A pity confluence provides a perfectly simple and fine GUI to export a complete page including attachments but doesn't provide the same functionality to import it. Unless I missed it of course.
