Application Backup the Database?

I'm using an external Postgresql database for my Jira, Crowd, Confluence, Stash, Crucible, and Bamboo applications. I've configured backups within each application (except Stash which runs Bash scripts for backups). Does this backup the data in the databases or is it JUST the site configurations?

For instance if my Atlassian server dies, will I be able to completely restore everything using the backups stored in {Home Directory}/backups?

Hi Jonathan, the XML backup also includes the content of the application (e.g.: pages for Confluence, issue for JIRA, etc).


In case there's any doubt, the backup for Crowd also includes the necessary parts of Crowd's database.

Some things to consider:

  1. For JIRA, DB is the full backup but not the attachments along with the issues
  2. For Confluence, same as JIRA
  3. For Stash, you need to backup repositories folder structure as DB does not contain repository/code data.
  4. For Bamboo and Crucible, same as JIRA

I usually prefer DB backup with folder sync.
