Organisations and Jira Migration

Hi, currently only have Confluence in Cloud without Access subscription so all manual sign-in. 

Want to migrate on prem server Jira Software and Core to Cloud with view of getting Access enabled along the way so we can have SSO.   

Reading the Jira migration info it states best to test in separate organisation than Prod. I don't believe we have existing 'organisation' just a site so can I just add the product into my  sit as a new trial?   

I don't want to impact anything to do with our live production Confluence Cloud product.

Referring to info top of page here:

Hi Richard,

Using the Jira backup data will overwrite any prod data. I will suggest you spin up a development/test instance to test the migration steps you need that are separate from your prod environment.

I would add that if you create the second instance from then it will be provisioned as part of a separate organization by default.

I'm a little lost.  How does importing Jira impact on Prod Confluence or it it in relation to Users/Groups?


Seems odd to spin up new organisation & trial.  Do I presume once satisfied migration is working well etc that the products can then be grouped in same organisation as thought that was whole point of organisations:  to group all your products together?
