Differences in Server/Data Center and Cloud

Features available in the Cloud version

Limitation in the Cloud version compared to Server/Data Center

  • Conditions, Validators and Post Functions are not available in a readable format, but marked as Custom (Limitation by Atlassian)


  • Added direct link to every page, you can now copy paste your exact location in Glass

  • PDF and Confluence Export provide more content with Evaluation license, but also censoring texts randomly to avoid Evaluation abuse but exporting a better result
