Export, import, archive Spaces:

  • PDF export is useful if you’re producing a printable user manual from your space “excluding blogs, attachments and comments”.
  • HTML export is used to convert your site content to a static website “excluding blogs, attachments and comments”.

  • XML export is used to export space content to import into another Confluence space, or for a backup “excluding blogs”.

  • Note: Confluence allows to use custom export and select the pages to export.

  • ⚠️When a Confluence space is exported, all the data including the restricted content will also get exported.

  • A space is imported from Space administration page and does not import users or groups.

As you already wrote, "Confluence Analytics" is available only for the Premium and Enterprise plans. As an alternative for any Confluence site, you can use the analytics available in the Better Content Archiving app:


It is also available for the Standard and Free plans. Even better, the app itself is free for the first 10 users!
