remove old backup automatically.

In JIRA 4.4.5 we have a daily xml backup happening and it gets stored in the Export folder under JIRA_HOME.

Is there a way we can have only a weeks backup and the older ones gets deleted automatically.

You can write a bash script that deletes everything older than say 7days or a month and put it on the cron.

This will help restore disk space

You can write a cron job / batch file for this . Also you can have a look at below useful link to overwrite the jira backup.

This response doesn't work as JIRA doesn't appear to overwrite automated backups with the same file name.

the only way to delete older backups is to write a cronjob.

do we have any opensource/shared scripts kicking around?
