Data Center and Server apps that won’t be available for Cloud

Several Marketplace apps built for Atlassian Server and Data Center will not be available for Atlassian Cloud. Find out which ones here.


Many Atlassian users depend on Marketplace apps to extend and customise their Atlassian suite of products for additional functionality — more than 60% of Atlassian Server customers use at least one Marketplace app or integration. However, with the end of the Server edition and in the continued journey to Cloud, several Marketplace apps built for Server and Data Center will not be available for Cloud.

Why Marketplace Partners may not build a Cloud version of Data Center and Server products

There are several reasons why a Marketplace Partner may not want to repurpose an app for Cloud, some of which include:

  • Incompatibility.
    Cloud may not allow for feature parity of the Data Center or Server application.
  • Business interest.
    The Partner may not have a business interest in building Cloud versions of the app.
  • Native availability.
    The features of the app(s) may already be offered natively in Atlassian Cloud.

    Other Marketplace apps for Atlassian Cloud

    Atlassian is encouraging all Marketplace Partners to build Cloud versions of their apps, where it makes business sense to do so so that no alternative is required. Additionally, Atlassian is actively reaching out to Marketplace vendors with Data Center and Server apps to confirm their intentions on building Cloud equivalents.

    How Atlassian determines Cloud alternatives to recommend

    More than anything, Atlassian wants to provide customers with the correct information that allows them to make a plan for their migration and successfully move to Cloud. Several factors are weighed up to source alternatives to the Data Center or Server versions, as there is no single criteria. Instead, Atlassian is creating a selection process through many data points to provide a comprehensive selection of alternatives to customers. Ultimately, experts are looking for alternatives that meet all or most customer requirements offered through the original application. Data points under review to source alternatives include:

    • Atlassian Cloud platform and product feature offering.
    • Similar keywords in Marketplace app listing descriptions.
    • Alternative applications selected by customers to replace when migrating to Cloud.
    • Apps reviewed by customers when deciding which app to select.
    • Apps by the same Marketplace Partner which may be a successor to the original.
    • Anecdotal insights from Atlassian teams supporting customer migrations to the Cloud.
    • App listings on the Atlassian Marketplace that have used the cloudAddonKeystring API, when there is an equivalent or successor Cloud app of an existing Data Center/Server app by the same Marketplace vendor.
