After you've successfully completed the migration, you'll need to go through a series of post-migration tasks to ensure that everything is functioning as smoothly and efficiently as possible.
Review your Cloud site
When your migration is complete, you will need to review the new Bitbucket Cloud site to ensure your data has migrated successfully. We recommend:
checking repositories for things like your commits and branches
allowing time for different teams and users to test different functionality
testing the operation and functionality of the application to identify any behavior gaps and, if needed, document them for your users
Review and assign user permissions
Once you have migrated to Bitbucket Cloud, you will need to create the necessary groups, assign members to these groups, and set the permissions for those groups to access any repositories. We are working on migrating user permissions to Bitbucket Cloud in a future release. Learn how to query a list of all permissions and users in Bitbucket Server
Project settings and permissions
We are currently working on creating more parity between projects in our Server (and Data Center) products and Bitbucket Cloud.
Add default reviewers
You will need to manually add your default reviewers from Server over to your new Cloud destination.
Once you have migrated to the Cloud, you will need to set up your branch permissions to match what you had set up in Server. Learn about using branch permissions in Bitbucket Cloud
Webhooks will not be migrated to Bitbucket Cloud using the migration assistant, and this feature is not currently on the Bitbucket Cloud roadmap. Learn about managing webhooks in Bitbucket Cloud
You will need to suggest or enforce merge checks across your repositories in your new Cloud destination. Learn more about merge checks
Connecting your Bitbucket Cloud workspace to Jira Software
Having your commits, branches, pull-requests, builds and deploys reported into Jira brings a massive amount of visibility into your development flow. As you have just migrated from Bitbucket Server, you should be familiar with this value and want to connect your Bitbucket Cloud workspace to your Jira instance.
If you’re on Jira Server, see Connect Bitbucket Cloud to Jira Software Server.
If you’re on Jira Cloud, see Connect Bitbucket Cloud to Jira Software Cloud.
If you've identified apps that should be installed, add them to your Bitbucket Cloud site.

Welcome your team
Now that the migration is complete, make sure your organization is ready. We recommend developing a comprehensive launch communication plan to share the new Bitbucket Cloud site information with the team. This can cover topics like:
actions needed post-migration, for example:
updating local remote URLs for migrated repositories
the URL they will use to access the new site
who they can contact with questions, for example, can you provide a chat room or an issue tracker where people can raise any issues or feedback
any notable changes they need to be aware of
links to any further reading or FAQs
Sit back and relax
Now that you're a Cloud admin, you'll have immediate access to our latest features and bug fixes. Installs, upgrades, and patches are managed seamlessly by Atlassian, so you can relax on your weekends.
To keep track of major changes that affect all users of the Bitbucket Cloud products, follow the Atlassian Cloud Documentation blog. This includes new features, bug fixes, and other changes across all Atlassian Cloud products.
