What happens to accounts after Access is installed?

Hi everybody, my group is looking at Jira on the cloud and we are thinking of moving over, but haven't taken any steps yet.  One thing is we want to know what happens to ur accounts - if we make Atlassian IDs to play around with a cloud site and migrate some data to see how it all works and then install Access, what happens to our accounts?  Do they just change to become Access or managed accounts?  Should we expect anything with our permissions to change or any other changes?  Having a hard time understanding what the implications are of adding access and what happens to our accounts?

@jena  - When you setup your domain it will pull all accounts in the Atlassian environment new and old.

hi @Garrett Gifford - I am looking for similar information - I'm going to be helping a team with their migration and (I believe) my email address, though not part of their organization, is within their AD structure.  When they move to Atlassian Access will my Atlassian account suddenly become a managed account under their Access account?

@Rob Horan  - If you have the same domain yes. I created a secondary account with admin level permission on Jira just incase. 


Also as a side note if a user has an account in Trello / Jira / Confluence they all get pulled in. 

So if their domain is and my account is linked to all of the users will me managed by Access, but my account will remain independent?

Thanks @Garrett Gifford and @Rob Horan . Do I have to do anything with Access after testing a migration before doing another live one?  Does Atlassian or anyone else have a site of gotchas or advice for migration?
