Having trouble disabling XML backup [jira 6.1.5]

Moinul Rony Mar 25, 2014

Hi,

We have recently upgraded to JIRA 6.1.5. We faced some performance issues effecting production so we are slowly improving performance. As a step in this process we are trying to disable XML backup by adding
"jira-config.properties" file in jira home /usr/jira/ directory with the following key-value pair
jira.autoexport=false

We also tried to disable autoexport from
/jiraserver/atlassian-jira-6.1.5-standalone/atlassian-jira/WEB-INF/classes/jpm.xml

<property>

<key>jira.autoexport</key>

<default-value>false</default-value>

<type>boolean</type>

<admin-editable>true</admin-editable>

<sysadmin-editable>true</sysadmin-editable>

</property>


But jira is still doing the auto export as we can see from the log

2014-03-26 16:03:20,549 QuartzScheduler_Worker-2 INFO ServiceRunner Backup Service [jira.bc.dataimport.DefaultExportService] Data export completed in 162879ms. Wrote 8297397 entities to export in memory.

2014-03-26 16:03:20,552 QuartzScheduler_Worker-2 INFO ServiceRunner Backup Service [jira.bc.dataimport.DefaultExportService] Attempting to save the Active Objects Backup

2014-03-26 16:03:20,785 QuartzScheduler_Worker-2 INFO ServiceRunner Backup Service [jira.bc.dataimport.DefaultExportService] Finished saving the Active Objects Backup

Please help!

Ok, After enabling the autoexport admin view settings in jpm.xml I was able to delete the backup server from
http://jiraserver/secure/admin/ViewServices!default.jspa

auto.export controls whether an export is made before restoring from another backup I think

And the upgrade - it tries to do an xml export when you point a new Jira at an old database...

Why not just turn it off in the admin configuration instead of messing around with code?

Yup, thats what I did, the only way to disable seems to be "deleting" the services called Backup. from that URL.
