Migrate from Confluence to XWiki

Supported Macros

When migrating from Confluence to XWiki, you will need to make sure that the identical macro exists on the XWiki side so that the pages that you import, that are using Confluence macros, are displayed identically on the XWiki side. The majority of the macros you have been using in Confluence already have an equivalent in XWiki, while some do not. Our aim is to ensure a smooth migration process for your team and organization by giving you full visibility for each step of the switch, including when dealing with macros. The main resource you need is a comprehensive, easy-to-follow comparison of the most commonly used Confluence macros and their alternatives in XWiki, available below.
