    Hi Winter,

    Thank you very much for this post! I am myself involved in the migration of wiki pages and hence your post helped me validated my approach.

    I have a question:

    I am trying to migrate wiki pages from a Confluence Server to a Sharepoint Server. I am able to move the content over successfully. However, I have a problem moving over the formatting information that is kept as part of CSS files on the confluence server.

    Since we have access only to the WikiField property of the target wiki page on the Sharepoint server, how do we link to an external CSS file?

    The one alternative that I could think of is to replace CSS class occurrences with the actual style information. Is this the only choice we have?

    Thank you once again for the post,


  3. Not knowing more about Confluence, I’d have to say–that is likely.  I can’t give you a factual answer due to my lack of experience with that product.  However, parsing the HTML for CSS references and inserting a new one should not be too hard to do if you manipulate the <IMG SRC=” processing that I showed how to do while fixing up the links.  Simply look for the CSS references instead, and if you know of some specific storage nomenclature that Confluence is using, you could easily look for that pattern, create a document library on the destination to store the CSS, and alter the inline reference to point to the new one or add your own.  I hope this makes sense–given what you have told me, that is the approach I would take (and one of the reasons I was so detailed about the various things I did in my code).

    Excellent post.

    However i have a question though. Can you migrate wiki pages from Confluence to SharePoint with this tool ?

    I tried it but could not succeed much. I can see from comments Parthiban tried it successfully. I still cant figure out which web service i will be using from Confluence.

    Hey Parthiban,

    Can you share the method or process or tool you used to move content from confluence wiki to SharePoint?

    Thanks in advance.
