Moving from server to cloud for developers

Atlassian is on a journey to becoming a cloud-first company, and we want you bring you, your apps, and your customers, along with us.

If you're an Atlassian server developer or Marketplace Partner, after February 15, 2024, there'll be no more support for:

  • Server products
  • Support for server Marketplace apps

Check the server end of life timeline.

Here you'll find resources to assist your migration journey.

Did you know?
Migrating to cloud results in a 19%-34% seat increase in core products, 2 years post migration completion.

Build for cloud

We offer a number of cloud solutions:

  • Forge, Atlassian’s serverless app development platform
  • Connect
  • Or, if your server app code cannot use a cloud equivalent, you may consider Data Center

Help your customers migrate

Offering your app in cloud unblocks your customer's migration.

Once you've built a cloud version of your app, visit our App migration platform to find:

  • Pre-migration steps such as:
  • APIs to integrate your existing migration paths with the Cloud Migrations Assistants, or how to build your own migration path to cloud
  • Sample apps that show various ways of implementing a migration listener for your server app with Confluence and Jira

Where to go for more information
