Can I migrate a cloud demo (5 users) for JIRA and Confluence to a production cloud instance (50-100 users)?

Simple question, trying to get buy in at my organization to come over to Atlassian tools which I've used previously. I am building out a demo with the 'free' license to prove out to management with a sample workflow in JIRA and sample structure for documentation and collaboration in Confluence. Am I able to at the end of the day migrate that to a licensed version of each once I can get buy-in, and even with different user levels?

For example I see us using a 50 or 100 user license for JIRA, but only 15 or so for Confluence.
I'd want to make sure I can use that structure rather than recreate it yet again in the production cloud instance.

A migration for cloud servers would usually be "export it from source and import it on target".

However, if you're using a trial, you can simply go with it - when you get to the end of the trial (or before if you get buy-in), buy it.  Then the Cloud "demo" becomes your production service, complete with all the demo data you had in it.

The user licences are really a separate ting, you can choose whichever is the best tier for you when you buy (and change it later) - it won't affect your data.

Go with Nic's answer unless you need to change the URL to something else for your production instance.

Sounds great thanks guys! There is a chance on changing the URL... since I would have to have a manager of IT approval on that (process). That's more work if so?

Changing the url for a cloud instance is, at the moment, a migration - you can't just change it.
