Improved configuration and data transfer in server to cloud migration

Administrators can seamlessly migrate all data configurations, including global configuration properties and profiles from server to the required cloud instance using the Confluence Cloud Migration Assistant wizard.

Administrators must upgrade the Confluence Cloud Migration Assistant (CCMA) to its latest version before proceeding with the server to cloud migration process.

Configuration data migration follows this process:

  • All global configuration and profile data 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.

  • Points to note about profile data migration:

    • For profiles with distinct names on the server and cloud instances, the profiles from both instances are combined and listed under Configuration > Profiles as-is.

    • For profiles with the same name in both server and cloud instances, the profile configurations available on the server overwrites the profile configuration on the cloud instance. Thus, only one copy of the profile configuration, taken from the server, is available on the cloud, and the original configuration details on the cloud are overwritten. 

Consider a scenario wherein you have:

  • Profiles in server: A, B, D

  • Profiles in cloud: A (profile with the same name as in server, and has the same or different configuration), X

After migration is completed, the Configuration page of the cloud instance now contains the A (with configuration details as in the server), B, D, and X profiles.

Blacklist or include domains as required

Administrators can now blacklist domains as required through the Blacklist domain values parameter available on Global Configuration. Add domains to be blacklisted or remove domain(s) from the given list and save your configuration settings. This parameter is enabled only if the Blacklist domains parameter is enabled. Users trying to access HTML or XML data in any of these blacklisted domains are shown an error message.
