If a product shows COMING SOON on the data residency overview, it means self-serve is unavailable for products with more than 2 hours of downtime on Standard and Premium plans. We're working to offer this option, but if you have urgent needs, contact support.
Check if your products can be data resident. Go to admin.atlassian.com > Security > Data residency.
This feature is available for Jira Software, Jira Service Management, Jira Product Discovery, and Confluence with Enterprise, Premium and Standard plans. It’s also available for Jira Work Management with Standard plans.
Data residency gives you control over where your in-scope product data for Jira Software, Jira Service Management, Jira Work Management, Jira Product Discovery, and Confluence is hosted. It allows you to choose whether it’s globally distributed or held in place in a defined geographic location, such as Europe or the US.
If you work in a regulated industry like finance, government, or healthcare, data residency may be a necessity for operating in a cloud environment. More generally, it can also help you meet company data management requirements.
View where your product data is hosted
You can view where your in-scope product data is hosted from your organization administration. You must have organization admin permissions to do this.
To view where your product data is hosted:
Go to admin.atlassian.com. Select your organization if you have more than one.
Select Security > Data residency.
This will open the data residency page for your organization. This page lists the products in your organization, the location of each product, and the AWS regions the location corresponds with. If a product is PINNED to a location, its in-scope data is held in place there.
If data residency is available for your product, you can request to have its in-scope data moved and pinned to a new location. To learn more about this, see Move data to another location.
To protect your data, we create automated Amazon Relational Database Service (RDS) backups daily. When you choose a data residency location, we also store backups of your data in this location. Learn more about how we manage your data
What are locations and AWS regions?
A product’s location is the geographical boundary where its in-scope data is hosted. Each location corresponds with one or more AWS regions, which are physical locations around the world where AWS clusters its data centers. Learn more about AWS infrastructure and the role it plays in our cloud hosting infrastructure.
The following locations are available for you to select from:
All Atlassian cloud in AWS region
Consists of AWS Sydney region
Consists of AWS Frankfurt and Dublin regions
Consists of US East and US West regions
Consists of AWS Frankfurt region
Consists of AWS Singapore region
By default, all products are hosted in the Global location, which includes all of our AWS regions. For these products, we determine where their in-scope data is located. To optimize product performance, we don’t limit data movement for these products, and we move data between AWS regions as needed.
If you require your in-scope product data to stay in a specific location, and data residency is available for your product, you can request to have its in-scope data moved to a location and pinned there. To learn more about this, see Move data to another location
In-scope product data
This table lists in-scope product data types that can be pinned, and out-of-scope product data that can’t. For definitions on these data types see the glossary.
✅ Can be pinned
❌ Can’t be pinned

Jira Product Discovery
Atlassian Analytics and Atlassian Data Lake
Why we don't pin user account information data
We store user account information in a central identity service, and a small, controlled set of replica services. We don’t pin these services, and the user account information in them, because we host them around the world to meet the performance needs of our customers.
We store user account information this way to limit its footprint in our system. It means that this information is not stored in our products at all. Instead, our products store representative IDs that they use to retrieve it from our identity services.
For these reasons, data residency cannot apply to user data at this time. We understand that this may be a challenge for some of our customers, and we are happy to help you find a solution that would work better for your data residency needs.
For more information on where and how we store user data, see the Atlassian Trust center.
How we maintain GDPR compliance
We take privacy seriously, and operate a global privacy program to meet the requirements of the GDPR, CCPA, LGPD, and beyond. We treat all user data the same way and use industry-standard technical and organizational measures to secure the information we store. Our Privacy Program is tailored to meet both legal requirements as well as your needs.
How does data residency work for Marketplace apps?
An app, sometimes called an add-on or plugin, is an installable component that supplements or enhances product functionality. You can find apps on the Atlassian Marketplace.
Atlassian Marketplace is comprised primarily of apps built by third-party Marketplace partners. These partners often work closely with Atlassian and use Atlassian's tools and APIs, but are not part of Atlassian. Only some Marketplace apps support data residency, which means pinning and migrating app data from one location to another. If an app supports data migration and pinning, you can request your data to be moved and stored within the same location as your host product. To learn more about this, see Moving your Marketplace apps data to another location.
Data residency for Marketplace apps largely depends on third-party Marketplace vendors. When you request a data residency move for an app, your request is sent to the third-party Marketplace partner who operates and handles the app data move.
When you move app data to a new location, keep in mind the following:
Once your product data has moved to a location, you can request to move eligible app data to the same location.
Both product and its apps will be offline, during the data residency move for apps.
Moving data for apps will require separate downtime, as the app data can only be moved once the product data is pinned.
Moving app data will require up to 24 hours of downtime
Some apps may not support the ability to move data because of one or more of the following reasons:
They don't support data residency in the same location as the host product yet.
They don't store any in-scope data, so no data needs to be migrated or pinned to a location.
They store data exclusively within the host product.
They currently don't support data residency move.
All eligible apps will be pinned together to the product location when the move is finished.
How data residency works for Opsgenie features
Jira Service Management combines rich service management capabilities with modern incident management powered by Opsgenie. The result is a next-generation solution for both IT and Enterprise Service Management (ITSM & ESM).
Currently, Jira Service Management features powered by Opsgenie aren’t incorporated into the Jira platform. However, Opsgenie data can be independently moved to a new location using the cloud migration feature in Opsgenie. Learn more about moving your Opsgenie data.
When you move Opsgenie data to a new location, keep in mind:
Opsgenie data and Jira data each move independently and have separate downtimes.
Currently, the downtime for an Opsgenie data migration is up to 24 hours from the time of request. When Opsgenie experiences downtime, any Jira Service Management features that are powered by Opsgenie will also experience downtime.
