The data in Confluence Cloud consists of two parts, the (1) macros in the pages that point to the (2) attachments on the pages that contain the diagram data (no data is held externally).

Both the macros and attachments will port as part of a standard Cloud->Server migration.

There is an additional step to migrations. Links in diagrams to Confluence pages contain the page ID of the page. Page names are not used since these break when a page is renamed. The migrated Confluence Server instance will change all of the page ID values.

You can find the exporter on your Confluence Cloud instance at, replacing xxxx with the appropriate base URL of your instance.

Click on the "Page IDs Export" tab.

Click "Start Export" and, when finished, the mapping will output to the text area below. Select it all, copy and paste it into a text editor and save.

In your Confluence Server instance, go to the admin page at BASE_URL/admin/drawioConfig.action and select the import tab:

Paste the result from the export into the text tield and press "start import".

Important note

Sometimes after space import, users might experience discrepancies between content in the page viewer and the page editor. In that case, we recommend restarting the Synchrony service.

Go to General Configuration > Collaborative editing and choose Restart Synchrony.
