How cloud-to-cloud migration manages users and groups

User management in cloud

Users in cloud have a single Atlassian account tied to their email address that they can use to access any Atlassian cloud product. This means, when we migrate users during a cloud-to-cloud migration, we don’t have to create new user accounts in the destination site. Instead, we link all data and activity associated with a user to their existing Atlassian account. Learn more about Atlassian accounts

How we migrate users and groups

All users and groups are migrated during a cloud-to-cloud migration. All active and inactive users are migrated, and content associated with deleted users is also migrated. You can choose to:

  • Migrate users and groups separately, which means you’ll need to add users to their groups after migration to give them product access.

  • Preserve group membership, which means users will remain in all groups they were a part of before migration and receive product access immediately. Learn about migrations groups and memberships

When you run additional migrations from the same source site to the same destination site, we won’t re-migrate all your users and groups. Instead, we’ll only migrate any new users and groups that have been added to the source site since the last migration.

Notify users

Users won’t get an email notification when they’re migrated to another site. When you’re ready, you can invite your users by going to Administration > Users > Resend invite from your destination site. Alternatively, you can also give users a link to the destination site and they’ll be able to log in directly. Learn more about inviting users
