Automate backups in Jira cloud

Dear All,

Our company already has a JIRA server licence. Now, we are considering to switch to the cloud version.

Jira's cloud version is able to generate a backup zip file which contains also the attachments. That's very good. However, as I see now, this procedure has to be initiated manually. Is that possible to schedule this backup creation? Since we would like to have daily backups, we don't want to do it manually.


Best Regards,
Zoltan Bakcsa

Hi Zoltan,

Indeed backups aren't automatically generated on Cloud and as Nic mentioned, you need a script to request the backups for you, you can have an example of script on Automatic backups for JIRA Cloud.

Thanks and regards,

There's no facility for doing this on Cloud.  You'll need to script something external that can log in, click the button and save the results somewhere on your client or server machine.

And it's not daily, you can only use it once every 48 hours.

To add more info to the answer: Daily backups are performed for all Cloud instances automatically. These are for emergency recovery purposes and cannot be downloaded.
