Step 2 - Post-migration

Go through what happens to the Page Approval macros post-migration and understand how the approval status from the macro is converted in the cloud environment.

The migrated space with Page Approval macro will automatically enable the Page Approval for Confluence Cloud app on your space in the cloud site.
