Support for Migrated Content

We have worked closely with Atlassian and their new cloud editor to help you move your valuable Confluence content to Confluence Cloud. Many of our DC/Server macros are directly supported in migration to Confluence Cloud.  Simply use Atlassian’s migration assistant. We have developed Cloud versions of some of our Server macros, allowing you to preserve and modify your content. We are continuing to work to bring more of your favorite macros to Cloud.

The most important thing is your content, so the migration process preserves that. However, the appearance of the macros may change. Some macros do not currently have a migration path, so will not display on the view page. In these cases, you will still be able to access all of the content on the edit mode of your page. 

There are four possibilities for what happens to your Content Formatting Macros:-

  • Converted to Cloud versions of the same macro. You will be able to edit the parameters and add new ones.
  • Converted to Atlassian macros so you can edit the macro parameters.
  • Converted to Legacy macros, so are view only.
  • They are not supported, so an "unknown macro" image is displayed on the view page. But you can access the content on the edit page.

What happens with each Macro

In the table below, you can check what will happen to each macro when it is migrated and what the most likely appearance will be. Using this information can help you to prepare for migrating your content.
