mass word document upload



I am looking into uploading 15000 word documents with images into confluence (ideally turning them into pages)


is there a smart way to do that?

This will be a huge project. I suggest a lot of scripting to first clean up the Word docs, then cleaning up the source in Confluence. And of course, I would try this against a local copy of Confluence for testing first.

indeed. i got that far.

any preferred tool for scripting that you would recommend in this context?

Probably Python. Confluence has good API support, but not sure how that works with the Cloud versions. Your strategy maybe to do the conversion on the server version, then move the spaces over to the Cloud once you are done.

I am guessing you have a month's worth of work ahead of you.

I did find this one app that might do what you want (except it does not support embedded images):


And you are in luck as it is available for the Cloud.
