New version of the App Assessment Screen coming soon

With the Confluence Cloud Migration Assistant and our recent release of the Jira Cloud Migration Assistant , customers now have a clear, step-by-step process for migrating users, spaces, projects, issues, and more from Server to Cloud. These apps serve as the primary “bridge” to cloud, and help support the increased complexity and demand for cloud migration we’ve seen recently.

The migration assistants also include a lightweight “App Assessment” functionality which helps customers understand what Server apps they’re running, and which of those are currently available on cloud.

We are continuing to improve on the capabilities of the Cloud Migration Assistants and our next release will include an update to “App Assessment”.

What’s new in the next release?

  • Links to vendor provided documentation
  • Links to vendor support if documentation is not provided
  • A new page to identify alternatives if “use alternative” is selected in the status column
  • A new page to prompt installation “needed in cloud” apps on cloud instance

Note: The Jira Cloud Migration Assistant does not include app usage data as shown in the screenshot below.

When can you expect to see the new versions?

  • Confluence Cloud Migration Assistant 2020-05-25T14:00:00Z
  • Jira Cloud Migration Assistant 2020-06-15T14:00:00Z

Sneak preview

When can you submit documentation for your app?

If you haven’t provided documentation for your app before the release dates your app will show a Contact Vendor link in the “Exists in cloud” and “Can be migrated” column which links to your app listing’s support tab in Marketplace.

If your app has no feature differences and/or does not require app data migration, please write documentation (like Balsamiq has done). This helps reassure customers that migration with your app won’t be a problem.

If you have documentation that you’d like to be linked or are looking to write documentation please submit details to our Marketplace Vendor Support team.


Hi @akassab,
We’re working on documentation for the products where we have cloud counterparts, and will send you links next week.

Regarding the ones where we don’t have a Cloud counterpart, i.e. Tempo Budgets, we were thinking if there would be an option to specify a link to some kind of “available alternatives” documentation? Or alternatively, could we influence when the (?) is displayed, and then where the “Contact Support” link goes to?

I’m asking because while we do not have a Cloud version of Tempo Budgets, we have another product on Cloud; Tempo Cost Tracker, which provides a potential alternative to some customers, and although customers could never Migrate directly from Budgets to Cost Tracker (Cloud), we would like to highlight this as an option. Do you have any recommendations to offer in a situation like this?


Hi, @akassab,
how should be the documentation?
Is there a format ?

@hlynur - We can manually link the Tempo Cost Tracker listing to the Tempo Budgets listing. This will change the Available column from :x: to :white_check_mark: and you can provide documentation explaining the differences between the two.

Hi @sromero - We don’t have requirements for the format. You can see an example from Balsamiq here.

Thanks @akassab - we’ll consider that option.
