How to make full backup of Confluence Cloud from command-line?

I'm making full backups of my projects from Confluence Cloud via the "On Demand Backup Manager" from the GUI.


Is there a cmd-line that I can call/execute via curl or some other script that I can do this with? I want to automate this process and make backups to the cloud.

There is no native way to take backup over CLI in Confluence, but you can look into Confluence Command Line Interface (CLI) add-on if you want to interact with Confluence over CLI

A lot of people automate regular backups with scripts.  Often variations on the one Atlassian documents at

Hi Nic, I have the same demand of creating automatic backups for our Confluence and Jira Cloud. You mentioned that many people created their own scripts. Do you have some examples? 


Thank you.
