  • Access to user management (ability to create new users, assign users to groups, grant product access, etc.)
  • Access to billing information

For more information on administration, check out our site administration documentation.

How do I manage users in Atlassian Cloud?

Users and groups are managed across all Atlassian Cloud products in a site, including Confluence Cloud, from a central user management portal. For details on the various user and group management functionality in Atlassian Cloud, refer to Managing users and groups.

Atlassian Cloud also has the following options to help improve or expand upon your user management capabilities in the cloud.

  • Atlassian Access is a tool for managing authentication and security policies across your Atlassian Cloud users. For more details on Atlassian Access and how it works, refer to our Atlassian Access for Cloud FAQs
  • G Suite integration - You can integrate your existing G Suite user directory with your Atlassian Cloud site. For more information, check out the Security with G Suite and Manage your users articles.
What type of domain names are supported for my Confluence Cloud site?

Domain names are chosen for an entire Atlassian Cloud site at the time you sign up for your first Atlassian Cloud product.  The supported format for the domain name is https://<domain_name>.atlassian.net, where <domain_name> is a unique word that you specify.

Note: Choose wisely, because your cloud domain name cannot be changed after your cloud site is created.

Can I use my Confluence Server custom theme in Confluence Cloud?

Customized themes you are currently using in your Server products cannot be migrated, but customization is possible in Atlassian Cloud. For more information on custom themes in Confluence Cloud, refer to Working with Themes

Is there a storage limit in Confluence Cloud?

The storage limit for Confluence Cloud is 250GB, regardless of your user tier.

If you have both Confluence and Jira, each has its own 250GB storage limit (note that all Jira family products have a combined storage limit).

Storage is primarily made up of:

  • Attachments from Jira products
  • Confluence attachments

Storage limits in Cloud are not currently enforced. We are currently revising our storage policy in Cloud and will roll out more options for purchasing additional storage, along with enforcing the limits sometime in 2019. We will notify customers in advance before we roll out these changes.

Currently, it is not possible to increase your cloud storage limit. You can get more details in our Atlassian Cloud storage policy documentation.

  • SOC2
  • ISO/IEC 27001

Which identity providers are supported in Confluence Cloud?

Licensing and pricing questions

What is the cost for a Confluence Cloud subscription?

Confluence Cloud subscriptions are charged per user on a monthly basis, or annually with a discount that equates to two months free.

Please visit our Confluence pricing pages to determine your monthly or annual subscription fees.

What is the cost of Atlassian Access?

If you choose to add Atlassian Access to your Atlassian Cloud site, it will be billed by the total number of unique users accessing any of the Atlassian Access supported Cloud products (Jira, Confluence, Bitbucket, Jira Service Desk Agents and coming soon... Trello). No matter how many products or sites a user has access to, they are counted a single unique billable user. Please visit the Atlassian Access pricing calculator to estimate your cost.

Can I switch my Confluence Server license to a Confluence Cloud license?

We cannot switch an existing Confluence Server license to a Confluence Cloud license since the two products have different licensing mechanisms - Server is perpetual while Cloud is a subscription. To move to Confluence Cloud, you would sign up for a new Confluence Cloud site and then stop renewing your Server license maintenance.
