    Externally accessible groups - moving from hosted to cloud

    ReeceO

      Hi,

       

      We are planning to roll out Externally Accessible Groups in Jive 7.0.2 hosted. Early next year we are planning to move to Jive cloud.

       

      As far as I can tell, the externally accessible groups feature looks pretty much the same in cloud, including the settings in the admin console. However, we don't want to set up groups now if things may become broken during migration.

       

      Are we likely to run into any issues with Externally Accessible Groups when migrating from Jive hosted to Jive cloud? e.g. losing groups external status, or losing external contributors due to settings.

       

      Thanks,

      Ollie

          Hi Ollie,

          You are correct that this feature should be the same in both Jive and Jive Cloud.

          I have not seen commonly reported issues with externally accessible groups in a hosted -> cloud migration, so I would guess that the likelihood is relatively low.

           

          Thanks!
