Migration from Confluence Data Center to Cloud

1. Limitations

Following limitations apply for migrating from Confluence Data Center to Cloud:

  • Only Bitbucket file macros are migrated automatically. All other macros (like e.g. the pull request or branches macro) have to be recreated.

  • The Bitbucket file macros are migrated in read-only mode. When you want to edit the macro parameters, you have to recreate the macro.

  • If the Confluence Cloud instance is connected to multiple Bitbucket instances, then the macro can’t determine the right Bitbucket instance. It will show manual migration steps in that case.

  • File ranges, regexes and hiding file headers is not supported.

2. Prepare Bitbucket instance

The Include Bitbucket for Confluence app supports both, Bitbucket Data Center and Cloud. You can choose to migrate to Bitbucket Cloud when migrating to Confluence Cloud as well, or keep the existing Bitbucket Data Center instance.

In case you keep your repositories on Bitbucket Data Center: it needs to be accessible via HTTPS on the public internet.

3. Configure Access to Bitbucket in Confluence Cloud
