backup and restore of custom database table


We have a custom table in our internal jira database used to store other information to be accessed by Jira (using SIL) and it works well, but we encounter an issue upon doing a XML backup and restore, the custom table was not included in the backup/restore.

I had read about JIRA's entity mapping on some blogs but cant find a documentation about this on JIRA itself?

Is custom database tables supported by backup/restore? Where could i find documentation about this?

Hi Eric,

As far as I know the XML Backup will just handle the know tables of Jira Schema, unless you change the entitymodel.xml file:

Hi Bruna,

I think the link you provided is outdated since it pertains to tomcat5.5 and also incomplete coz it did not talk about updating the entitygroup.xml which i think is the bases of entitymodel.xml, but then again im reading my info from other sources, i hope to have a source from JIRA itself, i dont want to mess our jira instance.
