Migration to cloud from server

Description

Before migrating your Graphviz Diagrams for Confluence app content from server to cloud, we recommend reading this Atlassian article to plan your migration.

This page explains:

  • Migration process
  • Differences between the server and cloud version of the app

Migration process

  • Confluence instance migration - Use the Confluence Cloud Migration Assistant app to migrate everything you need from Confluence server to cloud. Confluence Cloud Migration Assistant explains in detail the step-by-step procedure to migrate the required content. 

    It is recommended that the Confluence Cloud Migration Assistant (CCMA) is updated to its latest version before proceeding with the migration process.

  • App installation - Install the app from Marketplace.

On completion of migration from version 3.3.0:

  • All global configuration in the Configuration page are transferred from the server instance to the cloud instance as specified in the Cloud Migration Assistant wizard.

  • If multiple migrations are performed on the same cloud instance, the latest migration takes precedence.

  • Any subsequent migrations performed on the same cloud instance only adds or merges the data, but does not delete any existing data.

Important information:

  • The migration of data from server to cloud is an independent process from app installation or configuration in your cloud instance. We recommend that administrators verify that all your data (configuration as well as your Confluence pages) are displayed properly after the migration process is completed. Please report any issues immediately after looking through the known problem list.
  • We capture certain details, excluding private user data or any personally identifiable information, during the migration process to help us improve our app continually. Refer to Analytics data to learn more about the information that is gathered.
