Cloud migration
This page contains information for when you're migrating your Confluence instance to Cloud. Some Numbered Headings functionality will be migrated with you, while other functionality will be lost.


Numbered Headings works differently on Confluence Server / Data Center and Confluence Cloud because of the different integration points these platforms provide. This causes a difference in available functionality and what data will be migrated when you move to cloud.
Pages that use macro numbering will be migrated without additional steps. This also sums up for page numbering.
Spaces with space numbering will migrate to cloud without issues, but they will no longer be numbered. Page includes in the macro are not supported on cloud. They work as expected after the migration, but without numbered headings.

Feature comparison

In the overview below you will see what functionality is available when you use Numbered Headings on Confluence Cloud. We launched page numbering on Cloud in April 2021. Space numbering is currently not available, please contact us when you're interested in this feature for Cloud.
Note: Page includes are not supported on Cloud as we are missing integration points for them.

How to migrate

You can use the Confluence Cloud Migration Assistant to migrate your content to Cloud. There are no additional steps required for migrating Numbered Headings, all you need to do is install Numbered Headings on the cloud instance.

Macro numbering

The Numbered Headings macro is compatible between all hosting options and will continue to work after a migration. All you need to do is install Numbered Headings on your Confluence cloud instance.

Page numbering

Page numbering is supported on Cloud. Migrated pages that have page numbering will continue to work as expected with their headings.

Space numbering

Space numbering is not yet supported on Cloud. Migrated pages that have space numbering enabled will continue to work as expected. But their headings will no longer be numbered.

Page includes

Page include macros that are placed inside of the Numbered Headings macro are no longer numbered. The content of these included pages is shown within the macro on the page, without being numbered.
