Here is what you need to know about migrating your Jira Server instance with Agile Poker to Jira Cloud.
1. Server to Cloud migration
Agile Poker app will appear in Jira Cloud Migration Assistant to allow a smooth transition form Server to Cloud.
Agile Poker specific data like estimation configuration is not a part of the migration process. All estimates for completed estimation sessions are migrated as part of Jira data.
Automatic migration availability depends on Atlassian enabling app migration in Jira Cloud Migration Assistant.
What you might want to do:
Finish your estimation sessions in-progress as their state won’t be transferred during migration. That means estimates provided in scope of those sessions will not be transferred to Jira Cloud.
2. Features available in Agile Poker Cloud only
Cloud version introduces collaborative boards for team estimations. In case of Relative session it was only a moderator who was placing the stories while sharing a screen in Server version. Cloud brings a significant change to the team estimations:
All team members can join the same session at the same time. No need for moderator to share a screen!
If your team cannot reach a consensus during the estimation session, there is a voting feature to help you decide on the issue’s relative complexity
Check out Team Relative in action video if you want to learn more!
Another nice addition is support of Bucket Sizing estimation in Relative session type, so If you want to have a pre-defined number of labeled columns - that’s your choice.
There are also additional features in Interactive session available in Cloud only:
Issue Detail View. In Cloud Relative session it is possible to view and comment on Jira issues from the session directly, in a way you are used to - issue details appear in a modal window just like on any Jira boardSee interaction
Interactive session in Cloud is available through a dedicated page rather than embedded directly into Jira's backlog
Observer role. If a person wants to participate in an estimation session, but should not vote, you can add them as an Observer.See interaction
Easily switch between tiles and dropdown view for estimatesSee interaction
