JIRA - Restore Partials


We accidentally removed JIRA Agile plugin; after reinstall, all spint data was lost (as expected).

There is an export from yesterday, and I also exported the current database, which has new entries for JIRA Server.

Would it be possible to do a restore with last night's zip and import the non-Agile changes after that as well, using both exports?


P.S. Started looking at the xml files from export, but going to wait before messing around with trying to "combine" exports.

Since the Jira Export/Import does not fully support Agile, you probably won't be able to restore completely your data from yesterday. But it's, worth to try. Regarding your delta, after a new backup, I would move all issues to a new project and save again a backup. Than you could restore the older state, run a project import and move all issues from the temporary project.

Sorry for late response. Looks like all sprint data wasn't lost. Just needed to index after re-installing Agile. Thanks for the tip on the delta backups though!
