Jira on-demand automatic backups

Hi Guys,

I was just reading somewhere on the Jira site that suggested that Atlassian takes a backup of your Jira data every 24 hours however it can not be used to restore deleted data ( only for disaster recover by Atlassian). I am aware that backups can be manually taken from the backup manager however I am looking for something more automated.

Is there any way to script a backup of a Jira on-demand instance and move it to an external source e.g ftp, webdav, dropbox ?

Thanks in advance for your suggestions

Hi Tung,

It is possible to generate and download backups automatically with a script. An example of such a script can be found here:

This should be provided by atlassian for ondemand instances. Just do one back and overwrite it every 24h or so. Kinda said it's manual only

The backups can be automated, check out https://github.com/ghuntley/atlassian-cloud-backup which is a backup agent for the Atlassian Cloud.
