Atlassian Self-Managed Server End of Life

Atlassian Server End of Life

It’s important to note that Atlassian has announced the end of life for their self-managed server products. As of February 2, 2024, they will no longer provide feature updates, bug fixes, or security patches for Atlassian Server. This strategic shift focuses on the development and enhancement of Atlassian Cloud.

We highly recommend migrating from Atlassian Server to Atlassian Cloud, ensuring continued support and access to the latest features. The migration process outlined above will help you seamlessly transition to the cloud-based platform and take advantage of its numerous benefits.

Migration Process

Migrating to Atlassian Cloud is a well-planned and straightforward process. Here’s a step-by-step guide to give you an idea of what it entails.  Remember, RightStar is here to help!

Step 1: Evaluate Your Current Environment

Assess your existing Atlassian Server deployment, including the applications, add-ons, and integrations you’re currently using. Custom configurations or specific requirements must be addressed during the migration process and should be indentified as early as possible.

Step 2: Plan Your Migration Strategy

Based on your evaluation, develop a migration strategy that outlines key milestones, timelines, and resource allocation. Consider data migration, user training, and change management to ensure a smooth transition to Atlassian Cloud.

Step 3: Prepare for Data Migration

Before migrating your data, ensure you have a proper backup of your Atlassian Server instance. Identify the data you want to migrate, such as projects, issues, and attachments. Atlassian provides comprehensive documentation and tools to assist you in this process.

Step 4: Perform the Migration

Follow Atlassian’s recommended migration approach, which may involve utilizing their migration tools or engaging with their professional services team. Communicate with your users throughout the process to keep them informed and address any concerns.

Step 5: Post-Migration Validation

After the migration, thoroughly validate your migrated data to ensure its integrity and accuracy. Test your applications, add-ons, and integrations to confirm that everything functions as expected. Conduct user acceptance testing (UAT) to involve your teams and gather feedback.

Step 6: User Training and Support

Provide comprehensive training to your users on the new Atlassian Cloud environment. Help them familiarize themselves with the updated interface, features, and workflows. Establish a support system to address any queries or issues that may arise during the transition and beyond.
