Manually Recreate Artifacts after Bamboo upgrade

WE have a very large bamboo data directory which is not able to be backed up given the 4 GB zip limit.

Our hosting staff had to exclude the artifacts from the backup in order to succeed. How can we manually get the artifacts moved from the old system format to the new folder structure? What can you recommend if this is not possible?

Hi Tim,

If the Bamboo Backup feature can't be used, the best way to save the data is to backup the <Home-Directory> and a full DB Dump. The construction of the new folder structure for the the artifacts can be tricky. We recommend using the traditional upgrade method in order to get the new Artifact folder structure built. This is also important because the artifact folder is not the only change. The DB schema and other folders are also changed.

The Artifact folder format was documented here:


This is a folder shared by all the stages of a certain plan. Stages will place Artifacts here so that other stages from the same plan can have access to them. The BUILD_NUMBER will always have a minimum of 5 digits, having the number completed with zeros when necessary. For instance, for build "42" the number will be "00042".
