Migrate your Confluence data, users, attachments and metadata in just a few minutes using the multi space migrator. 

To migrate from Confluence to XWiki you will need: 

  • an XWiki instance with administrator access
  • access to your XWiki instance's configuration files, if you are running XWiki on your premise
  • a Confluence server XML backup file

The application will take you through the few steps that are needed to complete the migration of a Confluence space. Please follow the instructions in the "Documentation" tab for a full breakdown of each step. 

The Confluence Migrator Pro license and support is included in any Gold and Platinum support contract. 



  • an XWiki instance with administrator rights
  • access to your XWiki instance's configuration files (if you are running XWiki on premise)
  • Confluence Migrator Pro, Pro Macros and Task Manager Pro installed on your XWiki instance
  • administrator access to the Confluence instance that you wish to migrate content from or a server XML backup file

Once you have installed the Confluence Migrator Pro, open the prerequisites section and perform the necessary configuration in order to make sure the XWiki instance will support the data migration. 


If a prerequisite is met, a checkmark will appear next to its respective line in the dedicated section. 

Data migration

In order to migrate your data, first attach the Confluence backup file in the dedicated section of the migrator. 


You will be able to attach multiple files and start the data migration from any of them. It is also possible to use a space export. If your Confluence backup fails to upload please make sure that your XWiki instance has enough storage and memory, and also that the attachment limit is not too low. If you are using XWiki in the Cloud, please contact the support team, in order for them to perform the necessary configuration. 

Once you have identified the export file that you wish to use, click on "Select package". You will be redirected to the title page, where you can name your migration and configure the import options. 


If you wish to modify the default import configuration, for example, to skip user import or to not preserve history, click on "Advanced migration options".


Once you are satisfied with the configuration, click on "Save & View". You will be redirected to the package analyser step. The analysis of the package may take a while if the export is very large. 


Once the analysis of the package is done, the list of spaces will appear. You can select all, multiple or one space and search for a space based on their key. 


After you have selected all the spaces that you wish to migrate in this run, click on "Confirm". You will be redirected on the import log page. The process of importing and moving the pages into their correct location may take a while if the export is very large.


Finally, when the data migration is done, you will be redirected to the report page, where you will see the pages that have been successfully imported, along with the ones affected by errors.



You will be able to also later review the report by clicking on the migration page in the application's homepage. Moreover, you can run multiple migrations in parallel and see their status.
