I am trying to export from Sharepoint to Confluence. When I use the Get-PnPProvisioningTemplate command I get XML that seems very SharePoint specific. The same can be said for the HTML source of any SP page.

I was wondering if there is a way to use Sharepoint's API to extract the data from a site in a format that is readable by other Wikis?

  • Hi. Command Get-PnPProvisioningTemplate will export/create a template based on site, not the data and content. As I understand, that is what You are not looking for. There are multiple ways how to retrieve data, it depends on other system that is receiving data - what format, type etc it can retrieve.. and please be more specific by saying "extract data" - do You want get data from some specific lists or document metadata in library or else? – Kristaps Vilerts Jun 20 '19 at 14:23
  • Hey, I am attempting to export any files, pictures and text from the website. I do not need to maintain any styling. You are right that Get-PnpProvisioningTemplate is not right for this. I just am really new to this. The format would preferably be HTML, but really anything would be better than nothing. I am currently trying to export images and files using the Python Library BeautifulSoup. Thanks for replying, I know I'm probably not making much sense. – Claire Gribbin Jun 20 '19 at 14:34
  • Since Your requirements for migration are quite broad and general, I would suggest to look for already available solutions that are handling migration from Sharepoint to Confluence. I cannot give You exact vendors, but try googling and You will find many options. If You want to do this job Yourself, I would advise to look more into Confluence side of integrations and APIs - how to create data from code (that could be more complex than retrieving data from SharePoint). – Kristaps Vilerts Jun 20 '19 at 15:02
