Redirection by Easy Apps - onetime migration required (June 2024 Update)

A onetime migration of redirects is required

We released a major update to Redirection by Easy Apps on June 26, 2024.

This update must be installed manually and disables all previous redirects. You must perform a onetime migration to restore these redirects.

Why migration is necessary

Redirection by Easy Apps has been rebuilt using Atlassian’s Forge development platform. This change allows us to take advantage of Forge’s robust security and data residency features as well as update the app more often.

The update was released on June 26, 2024. After a system administrator manually updates an instance to the latest version, all existing redirects will immediately stop working. A onetime migration must be performed to restore redirection functionality.

How to update the app

The app can only be updated by a system administrator.

In your Confluence instance, navigate to Apps > Manage Apps:

You will see the update button next to “Easy Redirection for Confluence Cloud”:
