How to Transition from Custom Dashboards for Confluence
Learn how to migrate from Custom Dashboards for Confluence
After careful consideration, we have decided to retire Custom Dashboards for Confluence as part of our ongoing product lifecycle management process. While this app will be retired, we recommend existing customers use Dashboard Hub for Confluence for many of the same reporting features. To help make this transition easier, we’ve emailed a notice and discount code to all current customers to purchase Dashboard Hub for Confluence.
You can continue using your installed license, and we will continue supporting customers with active licenses, but we will no longer release updates through the Atlassian Marketplace. We will archive the app on November 9, 2022, and your license will no longer be renewable 90 days before this date.
We sincerely appreciate your understanding, and we hope the impact on your organization and customers will be minimal. Please don't hesitate to contact our support team if you have any questions.
