Wiki Imports

Several times per year, iCommons staff sets aside time to import content to the Harvard Wiki. These imports can either come from another instance of Confluence or from other Wiki software. iCommons has set aside a few time windows for running imports in order to ensure maximum availability during peak times and during upgrade periods.

Importing From Another Instance of Confluence

If you'd like to import Confluence content to the Harvard Wiki, follow these steps:

  1. Look at the bottom right of this page to see the current version. You don't need to match up to this version directly, but you do need the same major version (currently version 5). If you cannot upgrade to the matching version, we can still attempt an import, but there may be a few extra steps. Contact us at wiki_requests@harvardithelp@harvard.edu for more information. 
  2. Go into your instance of Confluence and export the content following the process outlined here. You'll want to use the export to XML option.
  3. Send the zip of the export to wiki_requests@harvardithelp@harvard.edu. If it's too big to send via email, drop us a note at the same address, and we'll get in touch with you. Make sure to include your preferred wiki space name and space key in your email!
  4. We'll then attempt to import the content to wiki.harvard.edu and let you know how it goes.

  1. The Universal Wiki Importer (UWC) converts your Wiki export to a format that can be imported to Confluence. After you run your export from your version of DokuWiki, MediaWiki, or another supported Wiki, run the files through the UWC.
  2. Send the zip of the export to wiki_requests@harvardithelp@harvard.edu. If it's too big to send via email, drop us a note at the same address, and we'll get in touch with you. Make sure to include your preferred wiki space name and space key in your email!
  3. We'll then attempt to import the content to wiki.harvard.edu and let you know how it goes.
