Hi! Using the REST API - or some other mechanism - Is it possible to tell if I am connected to a server instance or an on-demand instance?
If you see "-OD-" in the version then it is definitely Cloud.
Unfortunately the reverse is not true.
Sometimes cloud will have (eg) version "7.2.0" (then two weeks later it will move to "7.3.0-OD-01-xxx")
Another heuristic is the domain name ... eg if it is on "*.atlassian.net" (or one of a few others) then it is Cloud.
But this too is unreliable because that list could expand or change in the long term.
I did it!! https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRA-60416
I found it very awkward to word that request . . . are the two types of servers "onDemand" and "Server"? "Server" is not very descriptive . . . and now that I think of it, "onDemand" is now cloud.
Please feel free to update the ticket if you have any thoughts, or send them to me and I will update if you are not able to! Thanks!!!
Thanks for raising that.
Yep - "Server" can be ambiguous, but Marketing obviously think it's a good name, so who am I to argue
(Internally we often say "BTF" - Behind The Firewall - for On Premises installs but that's misleading too because our Cloud instances are all behind a firewall too)
I might change "Server type" to "Deployment type" in the issue.
