Backing up a project


I need to back up a single project from JIRA and provide it as an export to a client.

I can only find a way to export the entire instance - which I don't want to do.

Even if I did this, the resultant zip file goes to "WebDAV" and I need to authenticate to grab the file. I have no credentials for WebDAV.

Thanks in advance for your assistance!

i'm assuming this is ondeman version?

I am afraid you need to export everything from your instance using the backup manager. Then import it in a test instance locally, and delete all unwanted projects, and keep the ones you need only, and then make another export, which will contain only the wanted project.

you need to use an account that has jira-admin and log in with that. Then you can download the .zip
