    I'd like this functionality. My company is considering moving to Cloud and I'd like to continue using Archiving for managing out-of-date content.

    This is a must, without this plugin we just can't go to the cloud as its so vital for whole company. ~15000 employees.

    Please do make a priority if its feasible.

    We do have server version.

    Thank you.

    @Angelo,

    Thanks for your comment and support for this.
    We are considering the cloud version an important new development and it's not removed from our roadmap.
    However, there are a number of aspects that are dependent on Atlassian, so we are also working together with them to move things forward.

    While I don't have an official release date for this, I count on your and everyone's continued patience.

    Thanks!

    @Levente, 

    Can you provide any update regarding this? We are examining a move to Confluence Cloud and this may be a large roadblock.

    Thanks!

    Hi Matt,

    Many thanks for your interest!

    I understand that it's a blocker for you and for others, and I would like to make sure you understand the status of this.
    As I commented previously for Angelo, we are actively considering the cloud version, but it's important to see that we are also blocked on a number of areas by Atlassian.


    It basically means that currently, the Confluence Cloud API is not on a level of advancement that would make it possible for us to build a feature-rich app upon. What we could build today would not resemble the app you are used to, which we think would not add the amount of value we are aiming for and would just add to the frustration.

    I can again confirm that we are in discussion with Atlassian to move things forward. We obviously can't control their roadmap, so I also can't give an official release date. We will be communicating here once we have any updates.

    Thanks again!

    +1 from our side - now that Atlassian is moving straight ahead into the cloud, we would like to see your app available for cloud.

    Better content archiving is a very helpfull Confluence plugin.
    Right now we are using it on Confluence Server.
    With very likely a movement to cloud it's an app definitely worth keeping.
    Availability in cloud is a must have!

    Another vote.  We're on Server now but since might eventually have to move to cloud, this would be an essential app to have.

    The last update was from June of last year stating that the Confluence Cloud API was a blocking issue.  Is there any update available on whether the API has progressed, in this regard, over the past 10 months?

    David,

    I appreciate your interest in this.

    1. First, we don't have a precise summary of what changed in the Confluence Cloud API and Connect for Confluence regarding the previously existing limitations.
    2. Second, to be very honest with you, we see conflicting efforts from Atlassian that implement parts of the functionality that Better Content Archiving offers on DC/Server. They cover parts of the functionality through Analytics for Confluence and Automation for Confluence.

    Per se, it does not mean that we will not release our app for the cloud. We are still looking into its feasibility, because it could make sense to implement this with a different design and feature set - by integrating our additional logic with the Atlassian features. I just wanted to share this to manage expectations.

    We would appreciate and need to have the Content Lifecycle Management functionality in Confluence Cloud, too.

    We have already begun planning our migration to Confluence Cloud later this year and agree with the sentiments above, that we would love to be able to use this tool in our instance post-migration, but will be forced to find another tool or lose this functionality if there isn't a Cloud-compatible version of Better Content Archiving available by then. Here's hoping there will be a compatible version available before then.
    Thanks,
    Dan

    Any update on this?  We are starting to plan our migration to cloud and this is not currently available.

    Hi Todd and All,

    Thanks for your continued interest in the Cloud version Better Content Archiving!

    As we mentioned, we are monitoring the status of the Confluence Cloud API, and we are in talks with Atlassian to move things forward. Atlassian is the one that can improve the foundation we can build upon, but the Confluence Cloud API is not at a level that we can build a feature-rich app upon. Also, as Aron mentioned in an earlier comment, we see Atlassian releasing conflicting solutions. This means we have to be cognizant of how we structure our product development resources.

    With that said, this is absolutely planned and will come in one form or another. We can't offer any specifics on the release date but please continue following this space as we will communicate updates here first.

    Thanks for your patience and understanding,
    Levente

    Hi Levente,

    Thank you very much for your feedback to my enquiry on the Better Archiving for Confluence app and it's transfer to the Cloud. I understand the Confluence Cloud API is not yet on a level of advancement that would allow you to build a feature-rich app upon. We were completely satisfied with your app for the server version and hope that it will be soon be possible to have the app built for the Cloud version as well. Please keep us in the loop with any progress you might achieve in this direction.

    Thank you for your excellent customer-centric support, it is great!

    Best,

    Sylvia
