Is it possible to store Jira automation backup on bitbucket?

acam October 5, 2022

Sorry if the title is a little confusing. I am trying to get automation exports periodically and store them in a Bitbucket repository to track the changes. If there is a native versioning on automation, I couldn't find it. So, I came up with a solution like this but looking for a way to automate it. 

It is interesting that Jira asks for backing up workflow changes before publishing, but does not do the same for automation.

Any help or idea is appreciated! Thanks.

Hi @acam - With no API to access automation administration, it will be tough to do something automated.  Your best bet is to manually export the rules periodically from System >> Global Automation

Agree that it would be a nice feature to enable Automation backup or at least expose automation rules through the API so you can establish "set and forget" backups.  This suggestion is for opening up the API:

Thanks Mark,

Yes, I was looking for some level of automation to establish these "set and forget" backups. I voted for the issue. Thank you!
