Does migrating from Server to Cloud delete all the data from server?

I want to do a test migration from server to Cloud using the Confluence Cloud Migration Assistant but I don't want all the confluence pages to be deleted since that is currently production for us.

Hi @Gustavo Moura , 


the Assistant will never delete your data, you don't have to worry about losing pages or spaces. Atlassian does recommend backing up your Server instance but it's more as a peace of mind than a requirement.

Awesome, thank you Alexis! I just tested and you are right! I appreciate it.

@Gustavo Moura  I suppose not  but suggest you create  a  backup , even  better a snapshot  of  the  Virtual machine (Unix like for example)  to  be safe  and then  migrate  if something goes  wrong you can  bring back the  previous  state .

But we have a  very nice documentation here about this app step by step guide.

Best regards,


Thank you Moses!
