I read several threads regarding backup in cloud environment but I am stil confused.
I have, all cloud versions:
I make regular backups manually (backups for Cloud)
1/ Am I right noticing that I have :
I am making those backups in case something happens and I can reimport everything under a new Cloud instance
I read in several pages that it is NOT possible to restore directly a Confluence backup file when I have both Jira site and Confluence.
2/ Is it correct that in that case, I have to :
3/ Won't I lose information, internal links, attachements, images, whiteboards or anything in this process ?
Many thanks for your help
1) Yes, you are correct
2) That could be an option. At the other hand, export each space one by one costs a lot of time. If you script it, make sure to check if a space is added
Alternatively, you could make a Confluence instance backup. In case you need to restore, you can create a new temp instance. Do the restore there and then a space backup which can be used to restore Confluence in the same instance as Jira is running.
3) No. All "normal" standard Confluence items are in the backup. Most app data also will be in the backup. Losing information would only occur if the app vendor stores data at his own database which is not in the backup/export. I don't know if there are any.
Thanks a lot for your answer. I am sorry for my late reply, I did not receive a notification.
1/ Perfect, thank you
2/ I confirm it takes time and will need to script it.
Regarding your alternative solution : you suggest I make a whole confluence back up (so I get the big zip that has everything thru backup manager functionality). Import it in a new site ? But then by importing the Jira backup, it won't work
Thanks again, have a nice day,
