What will happen with created data if I deactivate an application or a plugin in our Atlassian OnDemand

We have migrated from JIRA Hosted (JIRA + Greenhopper) to Atlassian OnDemand. We would like to use the free month to evaluate two new features: Bonfire and Confluence.

What will happen with created data related to Bonfire and Confluence if we find we do not want to use them and I deactivate them before end of free month?

Will the data disappear or will we continue to see the data but not able to edit/create?

Are there any performance/stability problems when deactivating an application (Confluence) or plugin (Bonfire) with already created data?

Hi Johan,

When you deactivate an application in OnDemand then the data that is stored in that application will be lost, but any data that is stored in the other applications would remain. So JIRA issues that were created using Bonfire would remain, but any test sessions created in Bonfire would be lost as that data is stored by the application itself. However, when the application is deactivated it will be removed entirely and not just put into read-only mode. You shouldn't notice any difference in the performance of your OnDemand instance, regardless of which applications you are using so activating/deactivating applications should make no difference. I hope that answers your questions sufficiently

All the best,

Hi John,

Thank you. A very clear answer.

Quick follow-up on this. Is it possible to archive or off-load that data so that we have access to it post-deactivation?
