- Confluence Server instance (contains the Scroll Documents you want to migrate)
- Confluence Cloud instance with Scroll Documents installed
- Confluence Cloud Migration Assistant 3.2.0 or above
Things to Keep in Mind
The history of Read Requests and Confirmations for your documents will not be available on Cloud after a manual migration. We will be providing a fix for this soon. Until then, please watch the following issue to be notified of any updates -
DOCS-111 - Enable migration of Read Requests when migrating from server to cloud Open
Before you begin with the migration process, you will need to set a dark feature flag for the Confluence Cloud Migration Assistant.
Set dark feature flag
- Navigate to the following url - https://<Your base url>/admin/darkfeatures.action
- Now you are on a. page titled 'Development Features'. Scroll down to the bottom and enter migration-assistant.app-migration.feature in the text-box as shown in the screenshot -
- Click Submit
- In order to confirm that the feature flag was set correctly, make sure that you see the banner in the Cloud Migration Assistant like so -
Since Scroll Documents will be automatically migrated via the Confluence Cloud Migration Assistant, you will simply need to follow the Confluence Migration Guide -
Step-1: Plan Your Migration
Step-2: Assess and Install Apps
- In this step, make sure that you mark Scroll Documents as Needed on Cloud
- When you get to the final step, simply click Done
Step-3: Manage your Migration
- In the Choose what to migrate step, make sure you select all spaces in which you have created documents.
- Once you have selected the spaces, proceed with the migration normally.
Once you have successfully migrated, navigate to the corresponding spaces in your cloud site and confirm that all the documents and their versions are available. As a next step, you will need to set up the right permissions in each space to be able to create read requests.
Setup Permissions for Read Requests
You can ignore this step if you do not use the Read Request feature
On cloud, you get more granular control over who can create, edit, and delete read requests in a space. You can control this by setting the right space permissions. Unfortunately, due to a bug in Confluence these permissions are not set automatically and therefore need to be added manually.
- In your space, navigate to Space Settings → Permissions
- Now you are in the Permissions screen. Click on the Add-on tab as highlighted in the screenshot
- Provide the right permissions to the users and groups
Note: Provide View/Add/Delete Document Read Confirmation permission to anyone you wish to send read requests. Otherwise they will not be able to respond to your requests.
If you plan to use Scroll Documents' read request feature on Cloud, note that only users who have made their email accessible to the app will receive email notifications when they are added as readers to a request.
