You must be a Guru Admin for your Guru Team OR a Collection Owner for the specific Collection to migrate content from Confluence into Guru.

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

Exporting Content out of 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). If you'd like to remove the version history from your Confluence import, you'll need to make a new space, and use copy functionality to copy the page tree from the original space to the new space. The new space will be where you export from.

  2. Click Space Settings located on the left-hand panel

  3. Select Content Tools from the dropdown menu.

  4. On the Content Tools page, select the Export tab.

✍️ Note

In order to see the Export tab, you'll need the "Export Space" permissions in Confluence. You can read more about this in this Confluence Help Center article.

5. Select XML and then click Next.

✍️ Note

We do not support importing PDFs from Confluence.

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. Confluence will now begin to load an export directory for your Confluence Space. It may take some time depending on the file sizes.

8. Once the process is completed, click Download Here to save the zipped file of your Confluence Pages.
