We've recently acquired a company and would like to bring their Jira and Confluence cloud data into our primary Atlassian Cloud instance. I can't see any good recommended steps for this anywhere.
Are there any how-tos, third party tooling, or built in tooling to support this? The only suggestion I've seen in the previous questions here was how to do a destructive upload, ie the uploading data will overwrite the existing data.
I'd prefer not to have that happen since we don't have backups to roll back to like we did on Server last time we did a merger of data.

However just to give you a brief summary of how a cloud to cloud import works if using CSV (as this poses the least risk to your instance), you should start with the following steps in mind
The above will help you get a base start on how you can actually start with the migration.
