Automatic backup Confluence Cloud

Good day!

Can I setup automatic backup all information in Confluence Cloud? Do it manually - uncomfortable.

Hi @Roman Tyschenko ,

You can find a bash script to automatically backup Confluence at the below url:

 

However, as mentioned in the How to Automate Backups for JIRA Cloud applications KB page:

I hope this helps.

 

Ciao,

You are very welcome. Let me know if you have any question on how the script works :) 

 

Have a nice weekend.

Hi @Dario B I attempted using one of your backup scripts in GitBash but it just seems to timeout endlessly.

I am using the API token to authenticate and it seems to get through all the commands ok but then just endlessly runs the sleep command.  Any help would be appreciated to getting an automated backup of Confluence running.

Hi @Seth_A_Dowd ,

Please notice that, at this current point in time, I don't even know which one of the scripts you are using so it is a bit difficult to try to help.

However, if you are using GitBash I assume you are running the Bash script in Windows, but if that's the case why don't you just run the powershell ones? 

I am saying this because I don't know GitBash at all and I am not sure it can run the bash scripts without issues.

In the same repository you also have python and powershell scripts that you can use. Have you tried them? Do they all fail as well? 

 

Please provide more details on this issue.

 

Cheers,
Dario

@Seth_A_Dowd ,

If you use the powershell script instead, and you are stuck in an endless loop, this seems to be a known issue:

 

As written in there, please refer to below community thread for a working version of the script:

 

Cheers,
Dario

Is there an EASY way to automate backups? no scripts, etc. just clickyclicky for the rest of us? ;-)
