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.
