Exporting Confluence Questions pages

Are there plans to allow users to export what is held within Confluence Questions (to excel for example) as at present I can only see the ability to share the page link?

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.

Hi Sam

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.

Regards

Claire

Hi Sam, Is it possible to export all the questions and answers of a Topic in Confluence Questions to Word or generate a PDF of the questions and answers? Thanks, Sridhar

@Sridhar Krishnan no that's not currently possible. May I ask what the use case is?

I would like to extract all the questions and answers in a word document/ XML so I can read them while travelling & group questions and prepare a knowledge base to use them for Training purposes.

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've definitely got a Confluence Questions export/import story on the roadmap"

The ticket was created in 2013. That was six years ago. That is one very long road! :(

I suppose we shouldn't expect a Confluence Questions export any time soon or later. 

But is there an opportunity for us to build our own export tool? Some guidance would be helpful.

Thank you.

Hi Claire,

Wouldn't it be a bit big for an Excel file? How many questions do you expect? Do you just want the accepted answer for each question or all of them?

Cheers,

Adrien

Hi Adrien

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.

Regards

Claire
