We made an xml Backup and restored this on another JIRA Server. Everything got restored fine, except the greenhopper boards. In Agile JIRA shows "No boards are currently available." In the JIRA documentation I read all greenhopper settings will be resored with the xml restore but it seems not to work. Are there any special steps to restore greenhopper boards?
Actually, once you have restored your XML backup, you will have to re-install your GreenHopper (seeing as you have restored in on another JIRA Server).
The XML restore will only restore the database tables associated with GreenHopper, and won't install the plugin itself. You will have to install it.
I've got a similar issue to this as well - I have been testing backups for our Atlassian products this week and I have the GreenHopper plugin installed and enabled, and restored a fresh install of Jira with an XML backup. I can see all of our issues in JIRA, even the greenhopper boards but there were no current scrums (though there should be), and the board was completely empty of tasks.
I'm thinking this might be related with this KB article:
Additionally, it could also be this bug:
If none of the above are related, could you provide us with the screenshot of the problem and more information so we can have betteru understanding of the problem.
I guess none of the two articles seems to describe the issue we have. Its not that the boards are not empty or not accessable. The boards get not restored at all.
This is the way I tried to move our JIRA to a new server:
I made a complete xml backup on one JIRA Server where Greenhopper plugin is installed and different scrum board were created. Then I imported this backup on an other server on wich the Greenhopper plugin allready was installed. After importing the backup there is none of our scrum boards available on the new server.
How can I upload screenshots?
