Learn what data is imported when you move to Confluence Cloud using the Confluence Cloud Migration Assistant.

The Confluence Cloud Migration Assistant will only add data to your cloud site, not overwrite it – meaning you can move to a new or existing cloud site without issue.

(tick) What is migrated(minus) What isn't migrated
  • Spaces, including space restrictions.
  • Pages, including page restrictions.
  • Attachments.
  • Users and groups.
  • Global settings and permissions: These will need to be configured manually in your cloud site.

  • Apps: You'll need to work with the app vendors to migrate or re-install your apps in Confluence Cloud after migrating. Note that apps from Atlassian, like Team Calendars for Confluence and Questions for Confluence, aren't included in the migration.

  • Application links: If you plan to use Atlassian server products in conjunction with your Confluence Cloud site, you can create two-way links between your cloud and server products. If this applies to you, you can set these up after migrating.

  • 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.
