Hi Claire, I'm the development team lead on Confluence Questions.
Firstly just to clarify, are you talking about exporting an individual question along with its answers, comments, etc? or exporting the entire Confluence Questions site content?
To somewhat answer your question, we've definitely got a Confluence Questions export/import story on the roadmap, which will allow you to export all of your question/answer data independently of any Confluence spaces, pages, etc. We're tracking that work here: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CQ-359.
If you're talking about individual question export then I'm curious about your use case, I'd love to hear a bit more about what your ultimate goal is here. We don't currently have anything like this planned.
Our primary use for Confluence Questions will be for sharing knowledge with our colleagues who have access to Confluence but we are also looking at using it to share knowledge on projects which may be of benefit to team members who do not have access. With that in mind we would probably be looking at sharing categories rather than a single question or the entire contents but it would be nice if those options were available.
We are using the Questions as an internal tool for our group. However, there are several questions that contain knowledge that needs to be shared on our website, or in our support forum. An XML or other export based on a tag (or space, or something) is really needed so that we can take a subset of knowledge and make it available in our public-facing system. Does that use-case resonate with your plans?
We are looking at using Confluence Questions in two ways. The main one will be for sharing knowledge with users who have access but we will potentially have scenarios where we want to share certain categories with non users. It will be most likely that it will be categories where there is just one accepted answer.
Thanks for signing up for Jira Ops! I’m Matt Ryall, leader for the Jira Ops product team at Atlassian. Since this is a brand new product, we’ll be delivering improvements quickly and sharing updates...
