Atlassian announced major changes to its Server and Data Center offerings which heavily impact many long-term users of Atlassian software. Starting in February 2021, Atlassian plans to:
- End the sale of new Server licenses
- Increase maintenance prices for existing Server and Data Center licenses
With these changes on the horizon, the subject of migrating to Atlassian Cloud has become a priority for many of our app users. The good news is Scroll Documents maintains feature parity between its Server and Cloud versions, so there are no signifiant differences between the apps.
But before starting a Cloud migration, it's important to clarify some key points in order to go into the migration with the right expectations:
- Feature parity: Scroll Documents is available on all three platforms - Confluence Server, Data Center, and Cloud. While functionality is the same on all platforms, integrations with other apps vary per platform.
- Migration availability: Please note that at this point, there is no automatic migration path available due to a bug in Confluence that prevents documents to be migrated correctly from Confluence server to Cloud. As we work with Atlassian to fix this issue and establish an automatic migration path, we have provided a manual migration path as a workaround. You can use the manual migration path to test and plan your migration strategy. However, we highly recommend waiting for the automatic migration path to be available before you migrate Scroll Documents to the Cloud.
