Has anyone successfully automated their backups for Jira Cloud?

I know Atlassian has an export endpoint for Jira Cloud projects but doesn't provide a supported script to automatically use it, but that some 3rd-party scripts exist for this purpose.


Has anyone found these useful? If not, what are you using to take regular backups of your Jira Cloud site?

Hi @Danny Grenzowski _Rewind_ 

It´s been a while now but I once had to implement this for a customer and I was able to manage with information from following links:


I configured the shell scripts from the above mentioned repo and created a cron-job to recurringly process the backup.


Hope this helps.

Hi Stefan,

If you need a fool proof solution, there is a third party app called Revyz for Jira, this will do automatic backup and also allows you to perform issue level restoration. I am currently testing their Beta and its working very well. 

They are currently giving early access for free, you can try it . visit

Hope this helps you.

I've done it using Automation but I just have it set to run weekly.
