FAQ on Confluence Server to Confluence Cloud migration

Users who are migrating from server to cloud will be able to retain all macro data. Your questions around this scenario has been captured and responded to below.

Question

I want to migrate  Composition Tabs for Confluence to the cloud. Are there anything I need to know before doing the migration?

Answer

Only some macros in Composition Tabs for Confluence are available in Cloud:

  • Showcase macro is available in Cloud
  • There are two different macros for Tabbed Content available in Cloud

 Only some macros  can be migrated to Cloud:

  • Migration for Showcase macros works out of the box.
  • Deck of Cards & Card can be migrated after performing the mandatory pre-migration steps
  • Other Composition macros not available in Cloud can still be migrated without data loss (read more below).
Question

What happens to the macros / parameters that are not available in Cloud? Will my data be lost?

Answer
  • While these macros / parameters does not have any output and the values are ignored in Cloud, all data will be retained. Some of the macros will be coming to Cloud in future releases.
  • After the migration, all the unavailable macros in View Page mode will be hidden to prevent you from getting the "Unknown macro" errors.
Question

How do I migrate the app to Cloud?
