I have a atlassian add-on which was running in the server. I want it to be enabled as a cloud too. What are the changes should be applied for this?

You'll need to re-write it as a Connect add-on for Cloud.

The two types of add-on are structurally very very different, it's not just a few changes here and there, you will need to migrate your logic into a completely different framework.

Start at https://developer.atlassian.com/static/connect/docs/latest/index.html and expect to change the way you store data, implement the interface and probably the language your logic is written in.

Can you explain about the structurally different changes of the two add-ons? 


A "type 2" add-on runs code within JIRA, as though it is part of JIRA. 

Connect add-ons are web applications. Connect add-ons operate remotely over HTTP and can be written with any programming language and web framework.

Thanks Nic. We have developed a JIRA addon using Plugins2 framework which generates a JAR file with java API. Is there any easy way to convert it to the connect add-on? Is there any common way which configure both plugin2 add-on and connect add-on ?



As I said before, the two types of add-on are structurally very very different.  One is an add-on that runs inside JIRA, the other is a web-application.
