ELFAPP Technologies May 5, 2024

Have you been thinking of how to safeguard your Jira issues or projects? Have you searched on Atlassian Marketplace for a service that would fit your budget and requirements? Well, search no further, because the “Backup Projects for Jira” is an app that helps administrators automate and secure their project backups, allowing them to focus on other tasks and get stuff done.


Backup Projects for Jira enables you to automate a regular backup of your Jira projects and Cloud Site safely and securely. Schedule how frequently you want your data exported and saved and ensure even the largest projects are backed up seamlessly.

📊 Features/use case

  • 📆 Automated backup task → Create a recurring schedule that fits your requirements and forget about doing it again. Are you familiar with JQL?

    • Use any JQL to back up the exact issues, projects, specific user issues, specific comments, specific fields, all fields etc. The possibilities are endless with JQL, so whatever you can do with JQL, you can back those projects or issues up.

  • 💾 No export limitation → Get an export of your projects or issues in CSV formats

    • Choose the delimiter of the CSV file export e.g. comma (, ), semi-colon ( ; ), vertical bar ( | ) etc

    • There’s no 1K row limit, the max row exported in a single file is 25K rows configurable by you. Unlimited pagination occurs after the maximum limit is reached. Downloaded and sorted automatically for you.

    • Export all fields or current fields. Seamlessly configure your current issue search column results on Jira and the app will export them as current fields

  • 🔄 Restore projects → Easily restore project data using the CSV importer

  • 🗄️ Audit changes with stakeholders → Do you want to know what change happened in a project between last week and this week or probably between morning time and lunchtime? You can have snapshots of all the projects that have been backed up based on your schedule and download them at will to audit the differences between them.

  • 🔐 Secure data → Your Jira export always resides in your Jira site and never leaves it.

    • Data residency is not required as all data export is within your Jira site.

    • Unintentional project deletion will be a thing of the past. You will have all copies of your data based on your requirements

    • Backup your entire Jira Cloud site at intervals and never worry about data loss

      • Have multiple snapshots of your Jira Cloud backup each with a 14-day retention period.

    • Data access to the project extraction is permittable based on the permission scheme of the given project or issue

    • The backup data is hidden from view for all other users by default within your Jira site except Jira administrators

  • 🔔 Get notified once your export is ready → Get notification by the app once your backed-up data is ready or available. This is a configurable option

  • ⬇️ Download your data at your convenience → Download the data anytime you require by going through the collection of saved backed-up data attachments sorted by their name, size, timestamp etc
