Hey folks -
Any chance the ability to rename the space key is in 1.3? <weak grin>
I realize this is probably a big thorny task due to links in the pages, but my users want to do it. No, let me rephrase that... some of my users are whining loudly saying they 'need' to change the key, especially for "team" spaces where the team name/acronym has changed.
Ensure that you test this one a your test instance with full Jira / Confluence setup , prior to applying to Production instance.
Workaround for Confluence Cloud instances with Jira Cloud:
On Jira & Confluence Cloud instances, Space imports can be linked to Jira Projects. The process changes the Space KEY on the export file, to the Jira Project KEY.
Export the Space and import it by linking it to a new Jira Project with the new desired KEY:
- In Jira create a new project without a Confluence Space linked to it.
- On Confluence, go to Space -> Space Tools -> Content Tools -> Export -> XML -> Next -> Full Export -> Export Space and export the target space as XML including attachments.
- Download the export
- Go to Import Spaces
- Select the Export and the option to link the Space import to the Jira project created on step 1
- Import Space
- Verify content and remove previous space
Note: external links to Confluence Pages on the previous space will be broken.
