activeobjects and/or entities

When I did backup, it ends up with a zip file, then I can unzip into one folder containing two xml files:

activeobjects,   entities   (different size)

If I restore system from import folder, what should be given to File name, please ?

You will have to give the zip file path, not that of the extracted xml files. Put the zip file in the import folder and give its name.


Thank you, using zip file, yes, will do. 

what about startupdatabase.xml,  that's to resume the whole system, isn't it ?  I heard from Nic. 

so zip or xml,  but working for restoring ?

Not sure what startupdatabase.xml is for. If you import the zip, that restores the entire system

It's the file that Jira imports an empty system from when you install it!

Ah ok. Never paid attention to it!

Took me a long time to notice it, and longer to try importing it on a whim, just to see what it was!  Nice trick for "reset" though.

Indeed. Thanks for the hack. Can be easier than asking someone to drop the schema ;)

always good to know someone will be there for me. Thank you both !
