As an Atlassian customer using Jira or Confluence on server, you’re probably already familiar with Atlassian's plan to move the customer base to cloud until 2024. If you’re already using one of our apps for Server, you can change your subscription to Cloud.
This page describes the automated migration using the Jira Migration Assistant.
For a general overview on the migration visit Use the Jira Cloud Migration Assistant to migrate | Atlassian Support.
The migration will be fully automatic once Atlassian’s App migration platform is released. You can currently choose to participate in their Early Access Program (EAP).

Microsoft 365 for Jira is a Jira Cloud-first app - so there are a couple differences between the Jira Cloud app and the version for Jira Server and Data Center. Thriving for feature similarity on all delivery models, there are new features for Server / Data Center on the roadmap.
Also, a few features are only available for Jira Service Management as they solely relate to ITSM.
