Confluence allows you to import text files from a disk or a directory on the Confluence server, and convert them into corresponding Confluence pages. Each file will be imported as a Confluence page with the same name as the file.

The text file needs to contain Confluence markup to be converted accurately into a Confluence page.

(info) You need to be a System Administrator to import text files.

To import text files,

  1. Go to the 'Space Admin' tab of the Browse Space view. To do this:

    • Go to a page in the space, open the 'Browse' menu and select 'Space Admin'.
      (info) 'Space Admin' is displayed only if you are a space administrator for that space or you are a Confluence system administrator.

  2. Click on the 'Import pages from disk' link in the left panel under the heading 'Import'. This will display a new screen.

  3. Type in the directory's path in the 'Import directory' text field.

  4. Check 'Trim file extensions' to remove file extensions when converting the files to Confluence pages. Note that the Confluence pages will take their titles from the files' names (including their extensions). So to avoid having page titles with the suffix 'txt' in them, make sure you check this box.

  5. Check 'Overwrite existing pages' if you want to replace existing Confluence pages with the same page title.

  6. Click 'Import'.

Screenshot : Importing text files

The ability to import pages from disk applies only to global spaces, so the 'Import' section in the above screenshot does not appear in the 'Space Admin' tab for personal spaces. Please see Working with Spaces Overview for information about the differences between global spaces and personal spaces.
