Jira and Confluence automated backup using script

I found an article:

This is what I have been looking for. Using an ubuntu box I can create and keep a local copy of our JIRA system.


1) How do I restore files from backup**.zip file ?

Confluence Cloud has the same function in a similar place, all you'll need to do is adjust the urls a bit.

To restore the .zip files, use the application's "restore system" function you can find under "imports" in the admin sections.

Is that right?

Yes, it should be.

How did this work for you @samir 3p ? We have been trying to do the same on both libnux or windows but we keep getting an error that says

bash-3.2# sudo sh
starting the script: 06-05-2019
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?><status><status-code>401</status-code><message>Client must be authen
ticated to access this resource.</message></status>

Has anyone ran into this issue? If so how did you resolve it?

Thank you in advance.

You are using an outdated version of the scripts that is still using cookie authentication that has been deprecated as announced long time ago in:


Newer version of the scripts to backup Jira and Confluence using API Tokens are available at the below url:


For more details about API_Token please see:


Let me know if this helps.



I have ran the script with needful changes but its never return.
