Migrating Jira to new cloud instance and keeping confluence in old cloud instance

Jarmo Parviainen November 15, 2023

We planning to migrate Jira backlog from one cloud instance to another cloud instance but need to leave confluence to old cloud. There is reasoning behind this, but not going there in this question.

If we migrate issues to new cloud the links from Issues obviously works to old confluence if we have application link between them. but what happens to links from confluence pages to new Jira? What should be taken in consideration? Obviously they will break, but is there any easy way to keep them or bulk edit?

How about macros in Confluence. How should them be handled?

Hi @Jarmo Parviainen ,

Welcome to Alassian community!

As per my understanding, you want to migrate you data from old jira to new Jira and your old confluence will same. Now you are getting confuse, If you migrate the data then what happens to links from confluence pages and Macro.


Solution :-

As you know, we don't have the cloud db access, we can't do any operation work.

In the Migration, Atlassian team help us to repair the links and macro So After migration you just need to create a Migartion ticket to fix this and repair the old jira link to new jira link from the backend.

Please find the below document they have mentioned the solution
