Jira cloud automated backup script issue

Hi all,

I've downloaded powershell script to automate Jira Cloud backups from Bitbucket.

First days it worked fine. But now it is not working for any reason. I get the following error and it reapeats indefinitely.

Could you please help me?

Same problem with the .sh script.

Begins to proccess without problem, but when the moment of download the file comes, it fails.

Maybe is related with some global setting or permissions.

I could'nt find a solution :(

Look this https://yourserver.atlassian.net/plugins/servlet/ondemandbackupmanager/admin


They have already a backup for JIRA!!!, any news for that? XD

Thank you Gustavo, but I need to get the automatic backup script working back.

I am running the same script on my windows 7 machine and it worked fine. Had to download powershell ver 4. can you check your powershell version C:\> $PSVersionTable.PSVersion

Hi Diego,


If you get error 401, you are most likely affected by one the the below issues:




For the both of them the solution is to actually reset the password for your account in id.atlassian.com (you can just re-set the same password as before).


Also, please be aware that some endpoints have changed in the new infrastructure:
