Announcing the Bitbucket Cloud Migration Assistant

Update March 2022: The Bitbucket Cloud Migration Assistant now supports migrating from Bitbucket Data Center instances as well.

We are excited to announce the launch of the Bitbucket Cloud Migration Assistant, an Atlassian-supported app built to help Bitbucket Server customers automate the migration process from Bitbucket Server to Bitbucket Cloud.

If you are considering a move to Bitbucket Cloud, this is the easiest way to get started.

Download the app from the Atlassian marketplace.

What does the Bitbucket cloud migration assistant do?

You can automatically migrate:

  • Your projects and repositories (repository size limit: 4GB. For larger repos, you will be prompted to contact support to request an override.)
  • All pull request diffs and metadata (comments, users, authors, reviewers)
  • Users, including inactive users so past comments, authors, and reviewer statuses are preserved.

Note: The app does not migrate user permissions and groups. These will need to be set after the migration is complete.
