Import from Confluence

Easily import your spaces from Confluence to ClickUp.

Imports from Confluence are currently in an early beta version–we're excited to roll out improved functionality soon!

What you'll need

  • Confluence imports are available on all plans.
    • Free Forever plans have a limit of 500MB per month.
  • You need to be an owner or admin to import from Confluence.

Import spaces and pages to ClickUp

When you import your spaces and pages from Confluence to ClickUp they become Docs that you can find in the Docs Hub.

Any pages you import from Confluence will be shared with your entire Workspace. You can adjust sharing permissions after the import is completed.

To import from Confluence:
  1. In the upper-right corner of your Workspace, click your Personal avatar.
  2. Click your personal avatar.
    • In ClickUp 2.0, this is in the lower-left corner.
    • In ClickUp 3.0, this is in the upper-right corner.
  3. Click Settings.
  4. In the left sidebar, click Import/Export.
  5. Select Start Import.
  6. Choose the Confluence tile, then Import from Confluence.
  7. To prepare your import file, in a separate window, log in to Confluence.
  8. In the Confluence sidebar, click Space Settings.
  9. In the Manage Space section, click Export space.
  10. Under Export Formats, select HTML.
  11. Click Next.
  12. Select Normal Export.
  13. Click Export.
  14. When the export is complete, click the Download here button to download the contents in a zip file.
  15. Back in ClickUp, drag-and-drop the unzipped file or use the file browser to upload your file.
  16. Once the upload is complete, click Next.
  17. Click Import. You'll be redirected to the Docs Hub where your newly imported Doc will soon appear. Depending on the size of your import, this might take some time.

Import limitations

  • The import limit is currently set at 1.5GB.
  • There is no option to delete uploaded content from an import summary screen.
  • An entire Confluence space will be imported as a single Doc with subpages.
  • ClickUp does not support granular privacy for subpages, meaning everything imported from Confluence, including subpages, will default to being publicly available.
  • Additional unsupported items:
    • Attachments inside table cells
    • Section jump links
    • Comments
    • Various text formatting elements (e.g., toggle list)
    • Importing more than one Confluence space at a time
    • Links to other Confluence sites, spaces, and users will remain linked to the original sources.
