I'm not fully understanding the changes.
I am currently owning a self hosted Confluence Server (10Users) and bought the 10 Dollar license with 1 year support.
As i am not willing to change to the cloud,following questions:
What does end of support mean? As i am running my Confluence in docker, can i still update to newer versions or does support mean that i have to reside on the latest version released in my support time frame.
What does this mean security wise? How safe is it to continue hosting a Confluence Container with the current latest version?
It looks like for the next 3 years, you can continue to purchase maintenance for your system.
For the next year, until Feb 2nd 2022, Atlassian will continue to provide bug fixes, and after Feb 2nd 2022, they will only provide security bug fixes.
On Feb 2nd 2024, they will no longer release any further updates. In terms of security, you should be good until they stop releasing new versions in 2024. After that, running an out of date system can be problematic, especially if a security vulnerability is exposed.
How safe is it to continue hosting a Confluence Container with the current latest version?
This also depends on what security vulnerabilities will be found after Feb 2024. Minor ones - or critical ones. And then it would be still specific to your environment - you said it is running on a docker container, presumable without internet facing exposure?
Well, then it could be safe(r) than a internet based hosting (for example you run Confluence on your personal NAS but without external exposure to the internet).
But as always with security: one flaw suffices and malicious users have an easy game to play.
Hi Community! We're thrilled to share that Team Calendars for Confluence is now a built-in feature for Confluence Data Center releases 7.11 and beyond. A long time favorite, Team Cale...
