Need to copy jira backup on another machine.

We have jira installed on one server, we have scheduled a daily backup for that jira instance.

But we want to copy the same backup XML file to the external hard drive. so is it possible?

and if yes, please suggest a workaround.

Hi Mrunal,

depending on your operating systems have you had a look into available system tools like robocopy or rsync to simply move/copy files? That is nothing that has to do with Jira if you want to copy a file so you clearly have to look at it from an operating system point of view.

Best, Max

Hi @Mrunal D ,

Maybe I misunderstand question. If You have xml file then You can copy it with OS tools. 


Hi @Mrunal D ,


JIRA saves the backup to the export folder located in home folder. You have to use OS based scripts to copy the backup file to the desired external hard drive.
