Subject [jira] [Commented] (SOLR-13548) Migrate Solr's Moin wiki to Confluence
Date Wed, 19 Jun 2019 19:12:00 GMT


Cassandra Targett commented on SOLR-13548:

So...this is much more complicated than it sounded at first.

You cannot bulk delete pages in Confluence, so they have to be done one by one. However, because
of the {{.htaccess}} rules, you cannot get to each page to delete it.

There seem to be a couple of utility plugins installed to assist in deleting groups of pages
(from, click the "..." icon on the far right
and they're near the bottom of the list), but those seem to invoke the redirects in some way
because trying to use one just takes you to the new Ref Guide site.

Another option I found online is to use WebDAV to access the Confluence site. But that doesn't
allow you to delete either because no matter what I do it says an "@exports" directory is
in use. It's possible that Infra has locked us out there.

It seems to me there are 2 options: ask Infra to remove the redirect rules so we can delete
them page-by-page, or go extreme and delete the space. I strongly suspect, though, that if
we delete the space we can't recreate it with the same name. It's possible Infra has some
magic they can do to the database itself.

>             Project: Solr
>          Issue Type: Task
>      Security Level: Public(Default Security Level. Issues are Public)

>            Reporter: Jan Høydahl
>            Assignee: Jan Høydahl
>            Priority: Major
> We have a deadline end of June to migrate Moin wiki to Confluence.
> This Jira will track migration of Solr's [] over to []
> The old Confluence space currently hosts the old Reference Guide for version 6.5 before
we moved to asciidoc. This will be overwritten.
> Steps:
>  # Delete all pages in current SOLR space
>  ## Q: Can we do a bulk delete ourselves or do we need to ask INFRA?
>  # The rules in {{.htaccess}} which redirects to the 6.6 guide will remain as is
>  # Run the migration tool at [|]
>  # Add a clearly visible link from front page to the ref guide for people landing there
for docs
> After migration we'll clean up and weed out what is not needed, and then start moving
developer-centric content into the main git repo (which will be covered in other JIRAs)
