Roles: Authors, Admins


Guru uses a migrator tool that automates the migration process once the Confluence Pages are in the zip files. Follow the steps below to migrate your knowledge from Confluence to Guru. See here for more on Guru's migration options.

How to Migrate Content into Guru from Confluence

  1. In Confluence, Go to the Page/Space you would like to import to Guru (You can click on the 'Spaces' dropdown to access all your spaces)

  3. Select "Content Tools" from the dropdown menu.
  4. On the Content Tools page, select the "Export" item
  5. Select "XML" and then click "Next".
  6. Make sure "Custom Report" is selected. Then deselect "include comments" and all the Pages (this is to save time on your export from Confluence). Then select all the Pages you would like to export.
  7. Click "Export".
  8. Confluence will now begin to load an export directory for your Confluence Space. It may take some time depending on the file sizes.
  9. Once the process is completed, click "Download Here" to save the zipped file of your Confluence Pages.
