we want to develop the plugin for CONFLUENCE (and consequently for JIRA).
1. Is it necessary to take into account whether it is a cloud or a local solution?
2. Is it enough to develop plugin for the cloud version and this will be applicable automatically to the local version or do i have to take any difference?
Thanks for answers
Yes, they are totally different "architectures".
A Server add-on is a block of code that uses the internal application API the same way the code of the application uses it. You package your code up and install it deep inside the application.
A Connect (Cloud) add-on uses the external REST API to talk to the application, asks the application to modify some of its functions within a limited framework and does most of the work completely outside the application.There are some ways you can re-use ideas from one type with another, but it's not really code re-use, it's using the same logic to do something similar.
It's two totally different approaches to coding and packaging.
