Generally speaking, anonymously accessible Viewports using the Help Center theme can be migrated to Confluence Cloud.
On Confluence Server and Data Center, the Viewport is an alternative, themed view of a Confluence space which is generated when the user accesses the page and is served by the Confluence server. Through this proximity to Confluence, Scroll Viewport for Server and Data Center:
- Always resembles the current state of content on a page.
- Respects the full depth of Confluence permissions and restrictions.
- Fully supports custom themes.
Scroll Viewport for Confluence Cloud works differently, as it generates a themed static website from the content of your Confluence Cloud pages which is hosted by K15t. Based on this core difference, Scroll Viewport for Confluence Cloud:
- Resembles the content from last generation of the Viewport site.
- Does not support Confluence permissions or restrictions. All content is public, but we're working on authentication for Viewport sites.
- Only supports the Help Center theme.
- Only supports one theme configuration per Viewport site (on server Viewport Collection).
