Migration Guide from Server/Data Center to Cloud

  1. Replace emails and user names with display names. The Cloud edition only supports display and nick names. Therefore, replace an email like * jordan@example.local with * @"Jordan Example".

  2. If you have merge checks, enable the Minimal Successful Builds in the Bitbucket Cloud merge checks, as failed merge checks appear as failed builds.

  3. If you have Code Owners file for different sub-directories, then you have to consolidate the rules in the top-level Code Owners file. Let us know if want support for multiple Code Owners files on Bitbucket Cloud.

  4. Branch filters are not supported. If you need branch filter in the Cloud, let us know.
