What migrates with the Confluence Cloud Migration Assistant

The Confluence Cloud Migration Assistant will add data to a Confluence Cloud site without overwriting any existing data. This means you can migrate data to a new cloud site or a cloud site with existing data. Not all data can be migrated yet with the latest version of the Confluence Cloud Migration Assistant.

What is migrated

What isn't migrated

  • Spaces including the default classification level, personal spaces, blogs, and items in trash

    • Custom templates created by users within a space

    • Pages including page restrictions, page classification level, page history, labels, tags, comments, and shared drafts

    • Tasks

    • Attachments, except when added to a page as a link address

    • Space shortcuts: If you have space shortcuts leading to pages in other spaces, they won’t appear in the cloud. Known issue: MIG-1608

    • Team Calendars

  • Users and groups

  • App data: Marketplace Partners (also known as app vendors) need to provide an automated migration path for the Confluence Cloud Migration Assistant to migrate app data. Learn more about Confluence apps with migration paths

  • Global templates: Only global page templates and custom system templates are migrated. Learn how to migrate global templates

  • Global settings and permissions: These will need to be configured manually in your cloud site.

  • Application links: If you plan to use Atlassian server products with your Confluence Cloud site, you can create two-way links between your Server and Cloud products. Learn how to link Atlassian products

  • User avatars: Users will need to update their avatars after migrating

  • Passwords: Unless you've set up SSO, users will need to reset their passwords after migrating

  • Personal drafts: Shared drafts are migrated, but not personal drafts.

  • User Macros: User macros are not migrated currently.

  • Custom Emojis: You’ll have to recreate them in the cloud

  • Attachments when stored through the Confluence Mail Archiving plugin: You'll need to manually download and re-upload these attachments to your cloud site after the migration.

  • Attachments when added as a link address: When you copy the link address of an attachment from the Confluence server and add this copied address to a page, the attachment won't be migrated.

  • Activity Stream/'Recently Updated' view: Recently added or modified content, including pages, blog posts, mail messages and comments won’t be migrated.

Team Calendar components that are not migrated:

  • Internal subscriptions: In Confluence, a Team Calendar is linked to a specific space. Internal subscriptions lets a team view events from a different space's calendar, right inside their own Team Calendar. Internal subscriptions are not migrated. After migration, your Team Calendar will still have all its own events, but won't show the events from other spaces' calendars that you had subscribed to. To get those events back, you'll need to set up the internal subscriptions again in the cloud.

  • Jira linked Team Calendar events : Your Team Calendar can include events linked to Jira projects, these events help you visualize key dates from Jira. However, during the migration process, these Jira-linked events are not migrated correctly. The connection between your calendar and Jira changes in the migration process, and there events do not appear in cloud.
