Is there a way mass import images from a filesystem (previously wikimedia) into Confluence

Hi All

I am in the process of migrating from Wikimedia to Confluence. I have survived the UWC minefield and managed to export from wikimedia and import into Confluence - but given that the two applications make use of complex attachment algorithms to determine where the attachments are stored is it possible to mass mport images given that the links are removed from the database and is there a tool similar to UWC (or indeed can UWC perform this function) that I can make use of?

Confluence Command Line Interface has the addAttachment action. If the information for the attachment is in a database, then you can front end that with runFromSql

Thanks for the answer Bob. I had another look at the UWC and managed to get it doing what I needed to do.

where to include the addAttachment in the command "./run_cmdline.sh -e conf/exporter.mediawiki.properties " The images folder in mediawiki is in $mediawikihome/wiki/images and they are organized the subfolders/subfolders, etc.

Please advise.
