Free cloud migration trial

We’re offering our server and Data Center customers the opportunity to explore and evaluate cloud at their own pace for up to 12 months.

How it works

We provide cloud migration trials that match your user tier (up to 20,000) and the length of your remaining server maintenance or Data Center subscription (up to 12 months) to help you evaluate and migrate to cloud over time—without disrupting your teams.


Try Standard or Premium

During your cloud migration trial you have the flexibility to test Standard and Premium plans based on your team’s needs. Organizations that need advanced product functionality or enhanced admin controls often find Premium is the best solution for their teams.

Frequently asked questions

How long do cloud migration trials last? Show +

Cloud migration trials are extended to match the remaining duration of your current server or Data Center license (up to 12 months), and allow you to explore, assess, and test cloud over time—without disrupting your team. There is no credit card required.

Your cloud migration trial also matches the user tier (up to 20,000 per site) associated with your server/Data Center license, and is intended to help your organization evaluate our cloud products over a longer period of time than our standard 7-day trials (and without the functionality limitations of a 10-user Free plan).

Additionally, cloud migration trials let you choose between Standard and Premium plans, absolutely free. If you have more than 20,000 users per site and are interested in evaluating our cloud products, please contact us to get started.

What will happen to my existing Server or Data Center license? Show +

Cloud migration trials do not impact your current license in any way. You'll create a new URL ( in order to access and evaluate cloud using this extended trial. We strongly recommend you choose a URL that you’d want for your cloud site so you can utilize it for your production migration.

How should I use my cloud migration trial? Show +

Cloud migration trials last for much longer than a standard trial, and are intended to be versatile to help your organization throughout the entire migration journey.

We see most customers use them in 3 ways:

  • Tour: Use your free migration trial to explore cloud, test differences in functionality, and try out new cloud features.
  • Proof of concept: Cloud migration trials can also be used as a proof of concept for migration, used to set up initial projects, or build your business case with internal stakeholders. 
  • Test: Finally, you can use this trial to run multiple test migrations in a full production environment, without any limitations. This is highly recommended. 

Our goal is to make sure your cloud migration goes as smoothly as possible, without worrying about double-paying for licenses or rushing through testing. Cloud migration trials are meant to support your business every step of the way, and ensure your migration is a success. 

What if my self-hosted license is expiring soon or has expired? Show +

If your current license is expiring in less than 60 days, or has already expired, you’re still eligible for a full 2-month extended cloud trial.

Can this offer be added to existing cloud subscriptions? Show +

Cloud migration trials can be used to start a new cloud site, extend the length of an existing 7-day cloud evaluation, or be applied to any cloud site on a Free plan (allowing you to upgrade to Standard and Premium at no cost for the duration of your trial). 

Existing active paid cloud subscriptions are not eligibile for this offer.

How many cloud migration trials am I eligible for? Show +

Your cloud migration trial is designed to match the size and duration of an existing server or Data Center product license, and can only be activated once.

If you own multiple server or Data Center licenses, you are able to start a separate cloud migration trial for each license with a unique Support Entitlement Number (SEN).

Is there an extended cloud trial available for Access and/or Marketplace apps? Show +

Access includes a free 30-day trial by default. You can also submit a ticket here and our team will extend your Access trial to match the length of your cloud migration trial.

Marketplace apps include a free 30-day trial by default. After 30 days, Marketplace apps can be purchased while you continue to explore cloud and plan your migration using the extended cloud trial.

Who is eligible for this offer? Show +

Customers who own a Commercial or Academic Server or Data Center license with 11+ users are eligible for the free cloud migration trial.

Starter tier (10 users or less) and Community license holders are not eligible at this time. Customers with up to 10 users / 3 agents are encouraged to explore Atlassian's Free cloud plans when migrating to cloud.


Will Bitbucket be supported for cloud migration trials? Show +

Bitbucket is building a Cloud Migration Assistant that will be released in late 2021. As part of the release of the migration assistant, we’ll also be offering cloud migration trials. Sign up for updates on the release of the migration assistant here.

Will I get charged once my cloud migration trial ends? Show +

No, valid credit card details are needed to continue with your cloud product past the trial end date. 

If you’re on a monthly subscription, you’ll get an email prompt seven days before your trial ends, to enter your billing information. Once billing details are added, your cloud trial will continue onto a monthly payment plan.

If you’re an existing annual customer, you’ll get a quote for the annual amount, 30 days before your trial ends. To continue onto an annual cloud plan, simply pay your quote.

Are there other methods to activate my trial? Show +

Yes! You can activate your cloud migration trial within or through our Cloud Migration Assistants for Jira and Confluence. To learn more, check out our step-by-step instructions to activate your trial.
