Get your apps in Cloud
Migrating doesn't mean leaving your apps behind. Assess your apps early so you can confidently plan for your Cloud migration.
As you evaluate a Cloud migration, assess your apps to explore...
Cloud app availability
Use a Cloud Migration Assistant to determine if your on-premise apps are available in Cloud, and whether there are any feature or functionality differences to be aware of.
App security and trust
Atlassian defines security requirements for Cloud apps that all apps must comply with, but you may have your own security needs. Be sure to consider your privacy, reliability, support, and compliance requirements in your assessment.
Some of the apps you use and how you use them could look and function differently on Cloud. If there isn't a Cloud version of your on-premise apps, you may need to explore app alternatives or built-in Cloud functionality to meet your needs instead.
Apps can be migrated to Cloud via automated or manual paths. Conduct your assessment to determine which app migration paths are available and start building a winning migration timeline and plan.

Check availability and features
The Cloud Migration Assistant shows a list of your on-premise apps, whether those apps are available in Cloud, and any feature differences. Compare features across Server and Cloud, and consider working with alternative apps in Cloud to fill in any functionality gaps.
Review your security requirements
Atlassian’s security requirements
Atlassian defines security requirements for Cloud apps that all apps must comply with.
Atlassian Cloud security protocols
Atlassian scans and reviews Cloud apps to ensure they meet security requirements and checks Cloud apps for common vulnerabilities. Additionally, Atlassian enforces a Security Bug Fix Policy for Marketplace apps to ensure Marketplace Partners address issues in a timely manner.
Consider apps in your migration plan
Your app assessment shows you whether apps support manual or automated migration paths. This information will help you build your migration plan and timeline. Then when it's time to migrate, you'll move your app data along with your users, groups, spaces, and projects.
