How to make an OnDemand Confluence plugin with simple functionality

Hello,

Making plugins for non-Cloud Confluence is understood. It operates as a part of Confluence web application.

As about Confluence Cloud, I'm still not clear: where my code should "live"? Do I have to host it on some web-server of my own?

i just need my cloud plugin to provide some output to the page based on input data - just like any generic Confluence macro does. How to do that without having own web-server?

Thanks!

It is expected to live in your own web server (if you need a dynamic content, and in most cases you do)

Atlassian Connect just provides the framework to have CORS requests inside Confluence and JIRA, at least this is my understanding

Do you guys mean that for example https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/org.swift.confluence.table#cloud plugin, which has a Cloud version is organized as a service and there is some server somewhere which serves requests for ghis plugin?
