I want to migrate my Confluence database from Postgres 9.2.18 to SQL Server 2016, however on your supported platform page it shows only Microsoft:
Could you please let me know if there is any plan in near future to support SQL Server 2016.
Or Do you think I can still upgrade to 2016 and remained covered for Atlassian support?
Regards, Ajay Prakash(+44-7889670565)

@IT_nyc, not sure about Atlassian's official stance on this but I think it will work. I believe we were running 2016 at my last place. Anyway, try it in a dev environment and see.
As far as support ramifications, I would send a support request directly into Atlassian. I know they watch the Community but a direct issue will be faster.
On the Supported Platforms page:
You should only use Confluence with a supported platform. Any platforms and versions not listed on this page are unsupported, which means we don't test, fix bugs or provide assistance.
Since we don't test with SQL Server 2016, we cannot predict the way Confluence will behave with it. For a Production environment it is safer to use a supported platform.
@Peter DeWiit Ajay seems to have a starter license so he is contacting support by posting here. :)
@Ann Worley, some feedback for the Atlassian Team. It seems strange that we would need to vote for the current version of SQL to tested for Atlassian products. I would expect that the big three, Oracle, MS SQL, and Postgres would be automatically tested for the major releases....
We use suggestion tickets like Add support for Microsoft SQL Server 2016 to help measure customer interest in a feature. Users don't have to vote to get us to test against new releases of existing supported platforms. I didn't mean to give the impression that we would not test against new MS SQL releases if no one voted.
