We know that Atlassian’s commitment to a cloud future has raised many questions for our server customers. We’ve put this document together to address some of those concerns, specifically for our Comala Document Management Server customers. More information regarding our other apps will be made available soon.
The Comalatech team is hard at work ensuring that our Comala Document Management Server users find similar functionality in Cloud.
Due to functional differences between the Cloud and Server platforms, we are not able to deliver 1:1 feature parity between the environments. But we are committed to a cloud experience that offers the same end result as that found in server - effective control and management of documentation.
Please visit the Atlassian Migration Program for Atlassian's step-by-step migration resources, free tools, and dedicated support to guide you every step of the way.

Comala Document Management Server Migration Options
There are different outcomes for your Comalatech apps depending on how you want to proceed with your Atlassian software.
Regarding Atlassian's migration early access program: at this time, we are awaiting progress from Atlassian stabilizing their migration platform, and to address issues with it that we have raised. Until updates are made, we will not be able to make any further progress in the early access program. We will continue investing in migration projects once the platform is finalized for app migration, and we are hopeful that our customers will have smooth migrations then.
Comala Document Management Cloud Feature Parity
Comala Document Management Server's wealth of features and functionality has been built over the years on the Atlassian Server platform. Cloud is a much different environment than server, and it is much more difficult to deliver all of Comala Document Management Server features in the cloud. However, our goal is to make most of the features available in server by the second half of 2023 (depending on Atlassian's own progress with their Cloud platform).
Migrating to Comala Document Management Cloud
If you are considering migrating to Comala Document Management Cloud from our Server app this section outlines the process you will follow.

Comala Document Management Workflow Migration Process
Currently, the process for transitioning each workflow is a manual one, provided by our Migration Engineering team. Once complete, our team will share a JSON file that will allow the implementation of the workflow in your organization's Confluence Cloud instance.
We will support transitioning customer Confluence Server approval workflows into the Confluence Cloud platform, including the following information:
This process requires time from our team to prepare each workflow and should be taken into account when planning for the migration from Server to Cloud.
We advise our customers to reach out to our support team in advance, so we can plan accordingly and do our best to adjust to your organization's timeline.
