Comparing eazyBI for Jira Cloud vs Server
eazyBI for Jira

eazyBI is available for all Jira hosting options – Cloud, Server, and Data Center. The core eazyBI functionality is the same in all hosting options. There are some technical limitations that make some of the functions available in one or other hosting. These differences are described on this page, while the common functionality is the same and is not described here.

This page can be used to see the differences when planning the Jira Server to Cloud migrations or when doing the initial evaluation of Jira and eazyBI hosting options. If needed, then see also the comparison of Atlassian hosting options.

When migrating eazyBI from Jira Server to Jira Cloud, then please see the eazyBI database migrator description.
