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?

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.
