Getting Confluence Import to show spaces

Postby jhmcmullen on Mon Dec 02, 2019 2:08 pm

I am sure that I'm missing something obvious here, but when I try to import a Confluence page, the workspaces dropdown (for both the wizard and the create-import-file page) shows me the first 25 spaces and no more.

We have used Confluence for years, and every employee and every broad grouping has a space. You don't even get to our product document workspaces until you get to the first letter of the product name. The (old) product name starts with an R. The (new) product name now starts with a V. The first 25 gets me to the start of the letter C.

I might be looking for documentation in the wrong place: what I have seen so far is glossy and attractive and useless. It contains no information I didn't get from the GUI.

I can foresee a time when I have to apply new branding to old documentation, and it would be easy (well, easier) if the Confluence-to-Flare part were a big chunk that got done automatically. But if I can't get to the docs space, well, it won't be a help, will it?

Is there a way to get Flare to look beyond the first 25 workspaces? Do I have to figure out the workspace name and put it into a dummy .flimpconf file? (Except it keeps giving me the darned wizard instead of going on to do the right thing, so if that's the next step, I need a bit more hand-holding.)

I don't know if this approach will be helpful as I don't use Confluence, but when I need to use a Word import file I often create a basic one and then edit it in a text editor. Would that be an easier approach for you while the wizard is lacking? I can't test it because we don't have Confluence here, but could be worth a go.

And because you're having problems, do please raise a bug report (see my signature for a link) with clear details about what you need it to do - I would have thought some kind of Browse would have been pretty high on the list! The more people report that kind of thing, the more likely it is to get looked at.
