Learn how customers evaluate trust in cloud

Meeting your customer’s trust needs in cloud is critical to their decision-making. Before you determine how to build your app, ensure you can make it secure by design. You’ll want to consider aspects of trust such as your legal obligations and data egress.

Choose your development platform

We offer a number of cloud development options. If you have API dependencies that aren't on a development roadmap roadmap, letting us know can help influence our roadmap. Raise a development support ticket, or share your needs in our Developer Community.


Forge is Atlassian's serverless app development platform with security and authentication built-in, designed to make it faster for you to build fully functioning apps.


Connect lets you control your tech stack, but you will need to handle security and authentication with external providers.

External apps, scripts, and integrations

External apps, scripts, and integrations best suited for projects that don't need any UI elements.

If your server app code can't use a cloud equivalent, you could also consider Data Center.
