Metalogix Migration Manager for SharePoint - Blogs & Wikis Edition can migrate content from Confluence into SharePoint.
Confluence is an enterprise Wiki Content Management System (CMS). Migration Manager for SharePoint - Blogs & Wikis Edition currently supports any versions before v.4.0 that have SOAP API version 1.
In the Migration Manager - Blogs & Wiki Edition's main tool bar, select the Add Connection option, and choose Connect to Confluence.
The Connect to Confluence dialog will open.
In the Server Address line, enter the desired URL value to connect to Confluence.
In the Credentials tab there are two main check-boxes. The first is the Use default Window credentials check-box. This option is only required if there is an extra layer of authentication that must be passed through on the web server, before connecting to Confluence. Clicking this check-box will pass the currently logged in user's Windows authentication credentials onto the web server, to log into the web server before connecting to Confluence. Currently, only Windows authentication is supported for this extra layer of user authentication at the web server level.
The Use Confluence credentials check-box allows users to specify a set of User credentials to use when connecting to Confluence. Users can enter a desired Confluence user name and password. If the Save password check-box is selected the password for the user account that is entered will be encrypted and remembered by the Migration Manager - Blogs & Wikis Edition. If the Use Confluence credentials check-box is not selected, no specific Confluence credentials will be used when trying to establish a connection, unless the Use default Window credentials check-box is checked, in which case the logged in user's Windows credentials will be used instead.
If a Proxy is being used in the Confluence environment, users can switch to the Proxy Settings tab of the Connect to Confluence dialog, and set any desired Proxy setting. Please see the Configuring Proxy Settings page for more details.
After the desired connection settings are made, click OK to add the connection.
After a connection has been made to the Confluence source, there are some scenarios where default limitations are placed on the connection. For example, Confluence connections will close by default over time. However, Migration Manager - Blogs & Wikis Edition can work around these issues by editing the keep-alive setting. For more information on this, please see the Edit Connection Settings page.
Removing a source connection from Migration Manager - Blogs & Wiki Edition can only be done from the root node for that source connection.
In Migration Manager - Blogs & Wikis Edition's Explorer View navigate to the source blog or Wiki's root connection node for the connection that should be removed.
Right-click, and select the Remove Connection option.
Users will then be prompted to confirm if the connection should be removed or not. If Yes is clicked the process will continue. If No is clicked the action will be canceled.
If Yes was clicked in the previous step, users will then be prompted to save the metadata that is associated with the source connection. For more information on saving or loading this metadata, please see the Loading and Saving Metadata page.
Once this part of the process is complete (and the metadata has been saved or not), the connection will be removed.
