Hi Team,

Could you please update on the below queries at the earliest:
1) If we do not renew the license of BigPicture, then how can we ensure to archive project plans in BigPicture and have it available for future use?Could you please provide us the steps?
2) If the license is expired, is it possible to view the BP project plans in Read-only mode?3) Is there any specific format in which the BP can be archived?
Would appreciate if you could provide your updates at the earliest.Thanks in advance:-)

  1. You would need to export them to something you can save and keep outside Jira
  2. No, you need BigPicture to be able to read the data it has created for you

Thanks team for the quick turnaround.

It would be great if you could please provide the steps to archive the bigpicture project plans.

You'll need to export and save them.  I can't tell you how to do that, because I don't know what you  actually want to save. 

Thanks Nic.

I actually wanted to backup all the BP programs created for different projects.


Thanks Nic for your suggestion.

Just would like to share with you one more information which I had been provided for the above mentioned queries from the Softwareplant team.

I am unable to attach the screen as the feature is not currently working here.

Please find below the reply from the team.

Hi there,

Thank you for contacting SoftwarePlant Support Team.

If your data (Jira and BigPicture) are stored on your server, nothing will happen with those programs. You will be able to use the plugin in read only mode. 

Kind regards,
Tomasz - SoftwarePlant Support"
