Migrate JIRA+Confluence from server to cloud

Hi guys. We have been considering JIRA + Confluence in the cloud for a very long time now, but we keep getting stuck with questions about the migration process.

Our main question is: We currently have JIRA + Confluence on our local server, and Confluence is linked to the JIRA user directory.

Is it possible to migrate both systems without too much hassle? (i.e. no space-by-space import/export, no reconfiguration of permissions for every conf. space or JIRA project).

And in general: how should we approach the migration? JIRA first, Confluence second?

Thanks in advance!

I'd be tempted to do JIRA first, as it's more complex, but there's not really a lot in it in terms of migration.

You should review very well which add-ons are you currently using and if they are available on cloud. Add-on architecture is completely different between server and cloud so a lot of nifty add-ons are not available for cloud.
