This is the documentation for ConfiForms CLOUD app


At the moment ConfiForms cloud does not have all the capabilities that are present in ConfiForms app for server/data center

This is due to the differences between the platforms (technical) and user experience (behavioural)


Documentation on ConfiForms app macros for server/data center can be found here: Documentation


Overall, missing functionality in ConfiForms cloud

  • Import API 
  • Cleanup API


There is no auto-migration from server to cloud yet available. We are working on some automation, but this will not be quick. The work is still in early stages.

Please refer to the matrix below to see the differences between the versions of ConfiForms app.

Recovery API uses the same format for the file, but you have to be aware that user information in cloud and server is stored using different IDs and using recovery APIs in cloud with server RAW export (or vice versa) may not be what you are expecting
