Hi there,

does anyone have a script to run a JIRA cloud backup from a windows machine?

Regards

Hey Marko,

 

You may want to try the following:

  • Install cURL - http://www.confusedbycode.com/curl/ (scroll down that page and choose the version “With Administrator Privileges” - 32 or 64bits, depending on your version)
  • Install Git - http://git-scm.com/downloads (make sure you check option Git Bash while installing Git)
  • Paste the following code to notepad:

 

#!/bin/bash

USERNAME=youruser

PASSWORD=yourpassword

INSTANCE=yourinstanceURL

LOCATION=/where/to/store/the/file

 

# Grabs cookies and generates the backup on the UI. 

TODAY=`date +%Y%m%d`

COOKIE_FILE_LOCATION=jiracookie

curl --silent -u $USERNAME:$PASSWORD --cookie-jar $COOKIE_FILE_LOCATION https://${INSTANCE}/Dashboard.jspa --output /dev/null

BKPMSG=`curl -s --cookie $COOKIE_FILE_LOCATION --header "X-Atlassian-Token: no-check" -H "X-Requested-With: XMLHttpRequest" -H "Content-Type: application/json"  -X POST https://${INSTANCE}/rest/obm/1.0/runbackup -d '{"cbAttachments":"true" }' `

BKPMSG_CON=`curl -s --cookie $COOKIE_FILE_LOCATION --header "X-Atlassian-Token: no-check" -H "X-Requested-With: XMLHttpRequest" -H "Content-Type: application/json"  -X POST https://${INSTANCE}/wiki/rest/obm/1.0/runbackup -d '{"cbAttachments":"true" }' `

rm $COOKIE_FILE_LOCATION

 

#Checks if the backup procedure has failed

if [ `echo $BKPMSG | grep -i backup | wc -l` -ne 0 ]; then

#The $BKPMSG variable will print the error message, you can use it if you're planning on sending an email

exit

fi

 

#Checks if the backup exists in WebDAV every 10 seconds, 20 times. If you have a bigger instance with a larger backup file you'll probably want to increase that.

for (( c=1; c<=20; c++ ))

do

wget --user=$USERNAME --password=$PASSWORD --spider https://${INSTANCE}/webdav/backupmanager/JIRA-backup-${TODAY}.zip >/dev/null 2>/dev/null

OK=$?

if [ $OK -eq 0 ]; then

break

fi

sleep 10

done

 

#If after 20 attempts it still fails it ends the script.

if [ $OK -ne 0 ];

then

exit

else

 

#If it's confirmed that the backup exists on WebDAV the file get's copied to the $LOCATION directory.

wget --user=$USERNAME --password=$PASSWORD -t 0 --retry-connrefused https://${INSTANCE}/webdav/backupmanager/JIRA-backup-${TODAY}.zip -P $LOCATION >/dev/null 2>/dev/null

wget --user=$USERNAME --password=$PASSWORD -t 0 --retry-connrefused https://${INSTANCE}/webdav/backupmanager/Confluence-backup-${TODAY}.zip -P $LOCATION >/dev/null 2>/dev/null

fi

 

Edit the username, password and instance URL to match yours, and save that file with an .sh extension.

Then, open Git Bash, navigate to the folder where your .sh file is saved, and execute it:

./file.sh

 

Once it finishes, navigate to https://<your_instance>/webdav/backupmanager/ and the backup generated should be stored there.

 

Cheers,

Jose
