Trac Team,

We are looking for support/guidance here.

We have an old Trac based wiki system for managing our application documentation [having around 2500+ parent and child pages]. Further we are now trying to identify ways to migrate the wiki documentation pages from Trac-Wiki (1.0.18 version) on to the Confluence (7.19.1 version) system.

Is there a way to do this automatically with the help of some already defined solution? Such that we are able to migrate both the parent and child wiki pages at the same time? And also on how to do the bulk documents/pages upload from trac-wiki to Confluence?

FYI - I have also raised a ticket in this regard at Confluence support end [Altassian community]. Refer below ticket.

Thanks & Regards,

Sumit Shrivastava

I've done it twice by using an old version of Confluence, something like Confluence 6, which UWC (or was that a plugin?) as described in these responses to your question:

Step 2, export from that Confluence and you can import into Confluence cloud.

It was pretty difficult to do and the formatting was not all that great. 

I also migrated tickets to JIRA in both instances so I could be confusing this a bit with that operation. It was a long time ago.

As an intermediate step, you may also benefit from one of the following plugins:

- review columns in terms of sortorder, mandatory/optional, data types
- ability to perform data cleansing, for example removal of non-printable characters, or applying of date-formatting
- decide on where the images are going to go, since Trac and Confluence will differ on that.

Note: only some of the plugins will work, but since you are running Trac on Python2 I expect at least the newer ones to generate output.
