Early access program for app migration using Jira and Confluence Cloud Migration Assistants

Hi Community,

In October, we shared an update on new automated app migration capabilities coming to the Confluence Cloud Migration Assistant and Jira Cloud Migration Assistant.

These assistants are server and Data Center apps that provide a clear, easy-to-use UI and capabilities for migrating Confluence space and Jira project data to cloud. We’re working with Marketplace Partners who are building automated app migration paths that will make it possible to also migrate apps to cloud from within the cloud migration assistants.

We’re looking for customers to join our early access program to test and provide feedback on new automated app migration capabilities within the Jira and Confluence Cloud Migration Assistants.

 

TLDR: If you’re a customer who’s migrating from server to cloud and planning to migrate apps, this early access program is for you. You’ll get early access to features that make migrating app data possible. We’ll ask for your feedback to help us refine the offering, but you’ll also get plenty of support from Atlassian throughout the process. If you’re interested, please complete this survey and we’ll send you a MOVE ticket (Atlassian support ticket on getsupport.atlassian.com), which we’ll use to communicate updates and instructions on how to activate the app migration capabilities via a feature flag.

Keep reading for more information on:

  • How do I sign up?

  • Who’s eligible to participate?

  • What are the benefits of participating?

  • What’s required of participants?

  • When will the early access program start?

How do I sign up?

Please complete this survey and we’ll send you a MOVE ticket (Atlassian support ticket on getsupport.atlassian.com), which we’ll use to communicate updates and instructions on how to activate the app migration capabilities via a feature flag.

If you sign up but something changes and you can no longer participate, you can leave the program at any time.

Who’s eligible to participate?

  • You’re currently migrating or planning to migrate Jira and/or Confluence from server to cloud.

  • You’ll be migrating apps and app data to cloud. (We’ll double check on our side that at least one of the apps you’re migrating will have an automated migration path as part of the early access program)

  • You’re comfortable installing, troubleshooting and using software that is still in Beta.

What are the benefits of participating?

You’ll get early access to migration tooling features that can make cloud migrations much easier and quicker. Your requirements will also have a big influence on how Atlassian will develop the functionality needed to solve any challenges encountered.

Throughout the program, you’ll also have access to support from Atlassian. We’ll be maintaining a dedicated content space with the information you’ll need throughout the program. The space will be monitored so if you have feedback or questions on the documentation, you can respond directly.

What’s required of participants?

We'll be asking participants for feedback on the app migration capabilities and any opportunities for improvement. This feedback will help us understand customer needs and how we can make these capabilities even better before we roll them out widely to all customers.

You’ll be able to deliver feedback through the same Jira MOVE ticket that we send you when you sign up.

When will the early access program start?

We’ll run two separate early access programs depending on the product you’re migrating.

The program for the Confluence Cloud Migration Assistant will start in March and the program for the Jira Cloud Migration Assistant will start in May.

If you have any questions, please comment below and we’ll get them answered. If you’d like to sign up for one of our early access programs, please complete this form: go.atlassian.com/appmigrationseap

Great write up @Elizabeth Howden!  As someone who migrated from Server to Cloud almost two years ago, I love seeing how the what & how to migrate is constantly evolving!

This is great news! We've been helping many clients with migrations into cloud, and app data has been one of the biggest concerns in many cases. I'm glad to see movement towards integrating app data migration into the migration assistants.

Awesome to see this excitement! @Fadoua Is there any specific information you need or questions you have about these programs? Happy to help!

Does this already include Jira Service Management? 

@Pallavi We've also launched an early access program for Jira Service Management migrations. If you're interested in that program, you can sign up using the same survey link: go.atlassian.com/appmigrationseap

Hi @Elizabeth Howden - Is the April timeline for Jira Cloud Migration Assistant still on target? If so, any idea on GA date for customers?

@Kelsey LaMastres _Appfire_ We are now targeting early access launch for the Jira Cloud Migration Assistant in May. GA date for customers is still TBD and will be impacted by the results of the early access program. 

Feel free to follow along on this post for updated timing for all 6 of our migration-related. We will update the post with the most current timing: https://community.atlassian.com/t5/Atlassian-Cloud-Migration/Join-one-of-our-6-early-access-programs-for-migration-tooling/ba-p/1608441

Let me know if you have any other questions!
