Migrating MultiExcerpt from Cloud to Server/Data Center

The MultiExcerpt macros have different names on Server than they do on Cloud.  For example, the "multiexcerpt-macro" macro on Cloud is "multiexcerpt" on Server.  In addition, the macros have a few parameters whose names are different.

You will perform a migration with no loss of service by enabling app/macro modules (on Server) that use the MultiExcerpt macro names for MultiExcerpt-Cloud.  


  1. Migrate your content from Cloud to Server

    1. Export Confluence pages from Confluence Cloud and import into Confluence Server
    2. Atlassian Confluence Support References:
