This article contains the required information to migrate the app data from the server to the cloud efficiently. The server/data center(DC) to cloud migration of the macros can be performed without any loss of service on your server or cloud instances.
You must run the Confluence Content Migration Assistant (CCMA) to migrate your pages from the server/DC to the cloud. The pages are then ready for use in your cloud instance. In case of any issues, please contact our Support team for assistance.
