Change backup path in FishEye?

The FishEye docs on backup path mention: "The location to store the backups. Edit config.xml to change this setting."

But there is no further information, and the word "backup" doesn't even appear in config.xml. Anyone know how to change the backup path so I can set it to where our backup rsync script will see it?

Although it is obscure, you can indeed change the backup path from config.xml. Config.xml does not contain all valid elements as we default to internal values, so you are better at looking at config.xsd (the xml schema definition which provides the allowed values).

You can add the <path>/full/system/backup/location</path> attribute to the <backup> element to specify the url.

Hi there.

Just an update about this, the <path> tag should be added right after the <schedule> element - otherwise Fisheye/Crucible will not start with the ERROR:

2012-12-10 11:33:01,958 ERROR - Errors parsing /opt/atlassian/fecru/inst/config.xml:
2012-12-10 11:33:01,964 ERROR - Problem with config file: Error parsing config file (see logs): /opt/atlassian/fecru/inst/config.xml

Hope this helps :)

Hello...just in case someone else needs a sample to clarify further...

<backup><schedule enabled="true"><path>C:\_BAK_\FishEye\instance\backup</path><prefix>fisheye_backup_</prefix><date-pattern>yyyy_MM_dd</date-pattern><frequency>WEEKLY</frequency><time>07:00</time><items><item name="sql"/><item name="templates"/><item name="cache"/><item name="ao"/><item name="plugins"/><item name="uploads"/></items></schedule></backup>

The "path" element is placed inside the "schedule" element.

In my case, the config.xml filre refered to is located in "C:\FishEye\instance".

Regards,

David

But the scheduling section talks about directly changing the path from the administration window itself?
