How long is the Legacy editor supported?

Dear All,

 

  I recently got the legacy editor template enabled for my organization from the Atlassian Support team as the new editor had many shortcomings. We have a plan of creating all the topics in our confluence space of the User Guides into old editor and structure the content newly, so this will be a big work. 

But, recently I heard that the the legacy editor is unofficially supported and won't last too long. Although this is not sure, it might be kept active by Atlassian for just 6 months, or 5 years or even permanently. 

After hearing this news, we are a bit unsure whether to start using old legacy editor to re-create all pages or not. If we do this, and after 6 months the legacy editor is removed, whole formatting of the topics will be disturbed on the client facing space and that would be a re-work and a mess for our customers and Tech writers.

Does anyone have any visibility about how long the legacy editor will be supported or what I heard is a fake news. Is anyone with new editor but using the legacy editor template in their organization? Please guide.

 

Thanks,

Pradnya

Hi @Pradnya Nagpure As Alexis mentioned, there's no such announcement from Atlassian that legacy editor will not be supported. You can continue to create pages in the legacy editor, just that there won't be any new enhancements/bug fixes going forward unless there's a major incident. You can read more about Confluence cloud editor roadmap.

@Kishan Sharma  Thank you for the update.

Hi @Pradnya Nagpure , 

 

as far as I know, Atlassian has not given an end of life date for the legacy editor. Even if it's not enabled by default on new Confluence instances, customers can still request it by opening a support request.

 

Let me know if this helps,

@Alexis Robert Thank You Alber, this is helpful.
