Confluence Cloud space import

The Confluence Cloud Migration Assistant supports the vast majority of migrations, but there are some cases where another method may be required. An alternative to using the Confluence Cloud Migration Assistant to complete a cloud-to-cloud migration is to perform a Confluence Cloud space export and import.
