i am trying to take Jira attachments backup which we are not able to perform with XML backup. i would like to schedule a job for taking attachment backup in Jira.
one of you please help us on the same, which is a P1 task currently.
There is no attachments backup feature in Jira so I would recommend using regular backup tools to backup the directory of the attachments (<jira-home>/data/attachments).
Or you could create a cronjob on your Jira server to perform a copy of that directory.
Please note the XML backup mechanism is not recommended for production backup purposes. It would be better to backup your database and filesystem separately.
Well you have to backup 2 things at least:
Ideally you schedule the backups of of both items at the same time.
Some companies also chose to take regular VM snaphots when their application run on a VM. If your database is on the same VM and is only used for Jira you don't have to take a separate DB database. But the caveat is when you only want to restore the DB you need to restore the full VM. Everything has pros and cons :-)
