Migrating from Confluence Server to Confluence Cloud

To migrate from server to cloud, refer to Confluence Cloud Migration Assistant (CCMA).

This article answers some of the most frequently asked questions. The questions are as follows:


What effect will migration have on my LaTeX Math macros?

For most users, it won’t affect the macros at all. Macro content will be migrated automatically as a part of migrating all other page content. As an administrator, you will need to manually migrate the custom user macros and math block template in the LaTeX Math settings. If you used the default values on Server then no action is necessary.


Can I migrate data from other LaTex macros to the cloud?

Yes. To do so, you need to first make the macro key name in your instance compatible with the LaTex Math macro key name. This can be done using a tool available on the Migration Settings tab on the Configure LaTex Math page. Read Converting non-LaTeX Math Macros to LaTeX Math Macros to learn more. Once the pages are ready to be migrated, you can use the Confluence Content Migration Assistant (CCMA) to complete the process.


What are the differences between LaTeX Math Server and LaTeX Math Cloud?

Some server features are not available on Cloud, please refer to the following list:

‘laTeX’ macro

Only math-mode macros are supported on the cloud. Please use Math Block or Math Inline.

Editor helper features

Due to limitations on Confluence Cloud, the editor will not automatically create LaTeX Math macros when typing or pasting latex syntax such as \[ x \]. You must create the macro manually by typing “/” or using the + button in the toolbar.

Link text

In the cloud, you can only refer to the equation by number. This option for referring to the text as a link in an equation is not supported in the cloud.


Is it possible to convert my Confluence Server license to Confluence Cloud?

Unfortunately, no. Server licenses are one-time purchases with optional maintenance, whereas Cloud purchases are recurring subscriptions. As such, existing Server app licenses cannot be transferred or credited to Cloud. These are independent licenses that need to be paid for separately.

If you purchased your Confluence Server license directly via the Atlassian Marketplace, you may contact Atlassian Support to see if you are eligible for a refund.
