Unable to take server backup due to time factor Edited

I recently took a cloud backup of a jira cloud server, but I am unable to also take a server backup, reasons being that it keeps telling to wait for a specified number of hours before I can take a server backup. Meanwhile I don't have such luxury of time to wait before taking a server backup.

Any idea how I can bypass the time issue?

I would appreciate the help, Thanksimage.png

Hi @Precious Charles

in case it is useful I will link the documentation which provides some information on the whole topic -

The reason seems to be that creating a backup alongside with all attachments is a resource consuming process why there is a time limit.

From your description I am unsure if you aim towards a recurring solution as per "automation of backups". This is currently not provided however there seem to be some workarounds:

Please let us know if the issue was solved by waiting until the 48 hours block was released or if you have further questions.


Hi @Daniel Ebers 

Thank you so much Daniel, I wasn't able to use the documentation but I'm sure going to refer it to someones who just ran into same problem to try it out.

I was able to solve the issue by speaking to the support team but that shouldn't and can't always be the go-to solution. So I am very much willing to try your approach and send a feedback as soon as possible.

@Precious CharlesCurrently there is no workaround, you need to wait the prescribed number of hours.

Oh, okay. That's quite not good but thanks all the same for the help.
