At our institute we have an existing CMS Grid computing related TWiki that contains many pages and attachments. We would like to migrate its contents to CERN TWiki in order to decommission our own wiki service. However, uploading all the pages and attachments manually through the web interface would be most inconvenient and time consuming. Is there an automated way to migrate existing TWiki pages into the CERN Twiki (e.g. a migration tool, command line based "TWiki uploader" program or at least some kind of web service API what would allow one to write such a tool)?

Hello We can migrate the web from the shell. Where should the Twiki topics go ? CMS has several webs , one is public but the others are protected by egroups. Lets continue this topic in the SNOW ticket that you opened

We can import data from other TWikis and other wikis (like MediaWiki). Please use the SNOW to make such requests.
