Copy Space AddOn for Confluence OnDemand


Overview

The Copy Space AddOn for OnDemand brings the key functionality of the popular OnPremise AddOn to OnDemand.

The Copy Space AddOn will copy:

  • pages
  • attachments
  • labels
  • page hierarchy


Finding the AddOn

  1. Click on "Space Tools" in the lower left hand corner
  2. Click on "Overview"
  3. Find and click the new "Copy Space" tab



 


Permissions

Permission Errors

If you're receiving permission errors please give the group atlassian-addons full read/write access

For AddOns to work properly you now need to make sure that Confluence group "atlassian-addons"  has full read/write permissions to the content being operated on.  If you are receiving any kind of permission errors this is likely the case.

Please goto the space permission settings and make sure "atlassian-addons" group has read+write.  This is usually the cause of permission related issues. In some cases you may also need to check "general permissions" or page-level permissions if things have been locked down there.

 

 



Limitations

The current AddOn does have a limit of 500 pages to copy. We set this while attempting to gauge traffic. If you need a larger copy allotment please email:  help@artemissoftware.freshdesk.com

Welcome to your new space!

Confluence spaces are great for sharing content and news with your team. This is your home page. Right now it shows recent space activity, but you can customize this page in anyway you like.

Known issues:


Issue: 502, 504, 200 errors


Basically these errors are coming from the Atlassian Confluence server - most likely a proxy server issue where it is rejecting some of our requests because the server is getting too many requests.

We have raised this issue with Atlassian here but I think they've punted on it for the moment:
https://ecosystem.atlassian.net/browse/AC-2055

I've documented this issue here:
https://artemis.atlassian.net/wiki/pages/viewpage.action?pageId=44597250#CrossProductSupport/CommonTroubleshooting-502,504,200errorswhencopyingConfluencepages


We HAVE been able to figure out a work around with our other "copy page tree" add-on, but we need to update the same code in "Copy Space".

You could try using the "Copy Page Tree" add-on for the time being until we're able to update the add-on to work around the platform issues:


https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/com.nurago.confluence.plugins.treecopy/cloud/overview
You'd just need to take the extra steps of:
1) creating the space
2) running the copy (which you'll need to anyway)
3) switching the space's "home page"

We are working on the updates to CopySpace, but we have to work around limitations and what manifest as bugs in the Confluence platform as evidenced by the ticket above.


Issue: AddOn Permissions Not Set

(question) Getting this:   "Error: The application was unable to serve your request: com.atlassian.confluence.rpc.RemoteException: You're not allowed to view that page, or it does not exist.”

The error might look like this:

Set permissions with value SETSPACEPERMISSIONS (jcrawford)
Set permissions with value VIEWSPACE,EDITSPACE,REMOVEPAGE,COMMENT,CREATEATTACHMENT,REMOVEATTACHMENT (confluence-users)
Set permissions with value SETSPACEPERMISSIONS (administrators)
Set permissions with value SETSPACEPERMISSIONS (confluence-administrators)
Set permissions with value VIEWSPACE,EDITSPACE,REMOVEPAGE,COMMENT,CREATEATTACHMENT,REMOVEATTACHMENT (users)
Set permissions with value SETSPACEPERMISSIONS (site-admins)
Error: The application was unable to serve your request: com.atlassian.confluence.rpc.RemoteException: You're not allowed to view that page, or it does not exist.


 (tick) This is most likely because the AddOn's user "Copy Page Tree" does not have sufficient permissions for the operation. Please update permissions for that user to read/write the page tree.


Please make sure the AddOn has "Use" permissions under Administration --->  Global Permissions as in the screenshot:


"Documentation Blueprint" issue:

Spaces created with the "Documentation Blueprint" do not copy (nor let you roll back history). We've reported a related issue here: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONF-33246
