About YouTrack Cloud
YouTrack Cloud is a cloud-based web application hosted by JetBrains. YouTrack Cloud lets you take full advantage of the issue tracking and project management tool without the need to install or maintain the server. The YouTrack team performs all maintenance and upgrades for you.
Here's what you get with YouTrack Cloud:
A full-featured YouTrack instance according to your subscription plan.
Import from other issue tracking and project management tools using predefined import scripts.
No-effort migration to YouTrack Server using a backup copy of the data from your hosted instance, and vice versa.
A robust REST API for building integrations with third-party tools.
The default domain for the new YouTrack Cloud instances registered on November 2, 2021, or later is
youtrack.cloud. Newly registered instances are available at
YouTrack Cloud instances registered before November 2, 2021, remain accessible at the
myjetbrains.com domain. Once an instance is upgraded to version 2021.4, it may migrate to
youtrack.cloud. The migration requires the administrator to reconfigure the domain settings and the settings of some third-party auth modules.
Your instance name is automatically reserved on both domains,
youtrack.cloud, so you can migrate to the new domain at any time.
Migrate to the New Domain
All YouTrack Cloud instances registered before November 2, 2021, are hosted on
instancename.myjetbrains.com by default. When your instance is upgraded from an older version to version 2021.4, the instance administrator gets the opportunity to migrate to

Repeat the procedure for all auth modules that require reconfiguration.
