Why did we move to Confluence Cloud?

  • The Confluence Cloud platform provides improved features and ensures a supported platform.

What should I do now that the migration is complete?

  • Please log in and review your wiki content. While most content should have migrated successfully, there is a chance that some formatting might look different in the cloud.

  • Links to existing content in wiki.albany.edu will automatically be redirected to the cloud version of the same content after the migration.  ITS recommends updating any external links you may have to wiki content to use the new Cloud URLs.
