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.

Yes, I've been able to automate our JIRA and Confluence backups to AWS by tweaking the community provided scripts. 

In essence its a Python script alongside an accompanying Dockerfile allows an image to be built and then subsequently pushed and stored to AWS ECR (Elastic Container Registry). This can then be executed via a cron job using AWS EventBridge. On success or failure, the script invokes the Slack Messaging lambda (passes a JSON Array string) to provide a live notification to Slack.
