  1. Export JSON (with HTML inside) from Confluence via REST-API, e.g. curl -u user:password curl -u user:password

  2. Convert the JSON/HTML to Markdown

  3. Convert Markdown to .docx with Pandoc (you need to install pandoc on your machine, see "Links")

  4. Include the .docx file into a customer-specific parent-document (multi-file doc with title page etc).

==> automate the steps (e.g. as Jenkins job)


   java Confluence2MD -m wiki <pageId>  > [outputfile]
   java Confluence2MD -m file <nput file>  > [outputfile]
   java Confluence2MD -m url  <input URL>   > [outputfile]

-m wiki|file|url specify input format/processing mode (default: wiki)
-o file specify output format, charset=UTF-8  (default: stdout, charset=file.encoding of plaform)
-oa file specify output format, charset=UTF-8 - open for append!
-v true for verbose output       (default: false)
-u user:password to use HTTP-Basic-Auth to request the URL (default: no auth)
-depth -1..n the depth to follow down the child-pages hierarchy. -1=infinte, 0=no children (default: -1)
-server URL of confluence server. used in wiki-mode (default:
-plantuml  turn off integrated run of PlantUML to render diagrams (default is to call PlantUML automatically)
-a download folder for attachments (default: attachments)
last parameter: the file to read n (-f file) or the URL to get (-f url) or the pageId to start with (-f wiki)
+H true/false true: document hierarchy used to generate page header format type (child document => h2 etc) (default: true)
+T true/false true: title transformation ON (cut everything before first -) (default: true)
+RootPageTitle true/false true: generate header for root page, false: omit header of root page (default: true)
+gfm true/false: generate GitHub Flavored Markdown (default: false)

Extension: PlantUML

If you have a Confluence with PlantUML-Macro installed, you can write and see the UML diagrams in confluence. If you do not have the PlantUML-Macro, you can still write UML diagrams in confluence and let them render by confluence2md:

Create a Code-Block with title = "PlantUML" and insert you plantUml-code as the body, e.g.

frame "Load Balancer" {
[Load Balancer]
frame "Web Server Node 1" {
    [Apache 1]
    [Load Balancer] --> [Apache 1]
frame "App Server Node 1" {
    [Apache 1] --> [Tomcat 1]
    [ActiveMQ 1] <- [Tomcat 1]

Confluence2MD will render the text in the same way as it was created with the PlantUML-Macro. You can give the diagram an image title by chosing a title for the Code-Block that either starts with "PlantUML: " or "PlantUML - " where the part after this prefix is the image title:

  • "PlantUML - My Picture" will result in an image with title "My Picture"



Render PlantUml specs in pages and replace/add images as attachment for them. (To update pages when Confluence has no PlantUml plugin installed).

maven way to deploy to OSSRH and release them to the Central Repository


If your version is a release version: mvn clean deploy

(With the property autoReleaseAfterClose set to false) Trigger a release of the staging repository with: mvn nexus-staging:release

If something went wrong you can drop the staging repository with: mvn nexus-staging:drop

Perform a release deployment to OSSRH with: mvn release:clean release:prepare mvn release:perform
