Second, we’re planning to migrate the forums here at forums.creativeclouddeveloper.com into community.adobe.com early next year. There are a variety of internal-to-Adobe reasons for this. All of the existing posts will be migrated. Where everything will go is still in the planning process. I’ll present my migration plan on this forum for comments from the community within the next month or so.
The question then remains:
where is one supposed to log potential bugs with InDesign api for UXP? The 1st thing I looked at was uservoice, but I could not find any category for UXP.
Several Creative Cloud products, starting with Photoshop, have been migrating off of UserVoice over the last two years. These products then enable “Bugs” and “Ideas” categories in the community.adobe.com forums:
I think it’s a real shame that we’re to lose this forum
I also second @Karmalakas’s concerns, this forum is in many ways an appendix of the official docs for me and to lose links and bookmarks would be pretty onerous.

I hear you!
When the developer-related forums got archived in the migration I mentioned above, I worked with the forums team to get them un-archived. It took a whole year, but I did get them back… in that case, though, I only heard about the migration the week before it happened.
In this case, I’m responsible for driving this particular migration and have the best interests of developers in mind. I’ll do my best!
I always saw Adobe Community as not really mobile friendly. Just now wanted to check if it got any better. Sadly not at all. Can’t even share a link, because as soon as I visit the topic, Chrome crashes.
So I agree, but basically, Adobe is cutting back on non-standard software. My choices for migrating off of Discourse (this forum), which is not approved, are either Khoros (the Community forums) or Influitive, which is what the Adobe Community Professionals program (now called Community Experts) has moved to: https://adobecommunityexperts.influitive.com/
If you think Influitive is preferable, definitely speak up now!
For security reasons, if we were able to keep using Discourse, we’d have to move to the Enterprise plan, which would cost 5 times more for hosting per month than it costs now. (We’re on the extremely reasonably priced business hosting tier now.) We could, of course, install Discourse on Adobe servers, but I think that would incur other business costs to maintain. (Whereas we already have dedicated engineers working with with the Khoros teams.)
The big draws of this forum for me are:
• ease of mobile use
• laser focussed content - we’re not bothered by non-developer posts i.e. graphics card problems, general application usage questions etc
• quick and easy to find relevant content
• rich editing controls - it’s very easy to supply readable, formatted code blocks, an essential for a forum of this topic imo.
This has been preying on my mind over the last week and I’ve categorically come to the conclusion that my engagement with this forum is directly proportional to its UX.
I feel pretty confident that I’d be less inclined to engage if the replacement was less mobile friendly. I generally find myself responding on my phone and not my desk/laptop and I’m not convinced that the community forums offer the same experience. I completely understand the business decisions that underpin the migration, but if I’m completely honest I’m already grieving
Yea. The first thing I check is the thread title. The detailed content is not so important on a first overview (Of course, the title should make sense and should not be “Need help” etc.). I also find the number of replies quite important. So we can see if someone already got an answer. And this number is very very small.
