Migrating from Redirection Server to Redirection Cloud

This page outlines the steps to migrate your Redirection data from Confluence Server or Data Center to Confluence Cloud. 

At the end of this guide, you will have:

  • Upgraded Redirection macro to at least version 5.3.2 and or above
  • Understand the macro differences and feature differences between Redirection for Confluence Server and Confluence Cloud. 
  • Perform the migration using Confluence Cloud Migration Tool or through Space Exports.
  • Check and re-configure your Redirection data in Confluence Cloud.

These steps may take a few hours to complete depending on how large your Confluence data is.


Step 1 - Plan out your migration

Before you start, consider the following:

  • Understand the macro differences and feature differences between Redirection for Confluence Server and Confluence Cloud. 
  • Take note of all Redirection macros that are on your site, and which ones cannot be migrated.
    • You can easily find out the location of all your Redirection macros by going to Confluence Admin > Macro Usage > Search for "Redirection"
  • Allocate time for a test migration to understand the steps required to migrate data using the Atlassian migration tool (CCMA)

Step 2 - Migrate your site using the Confluence Cloud Migration tool

Step 3 - Check if your data are all intact

Things to take note of:

  • All macros that are unavailable in Cloud will be displayed as "unknown macros".
  • The Location parameter in Cloud does not accept attachment as a value. If you have this, the macro will render error messages. Edit the page and change the attachment location to the Confluence Attachment parameter instead
  • Refer back to the feature differences for other Redirection macro behavior that is different from Server & Cloud
