As soon as you install the app, the first backup of your entire site begins automatically, you do not have to do anything.

In the “Job stats” card the backup job status is QUEUED this will change to RUNNING when the backup job begins.

Your first backup is typically the backup which takes a long period of time depending on the volume of Jira Issues you have in your site and attachments.

In the “Jobs” page you will see two backup jobs that are automatically created for you, one job is to backup all the “Issues” in your Jira site and the other to backup all the “Configuration”.

The Revyz Backup & Restore app treats these two Issues and Configuration as two separate virtual objects.

The “Jobs” page gives you an approximate estimate of time it would take for the backup jobs to be completed.

Once the first backup is complete the next backups are automatically scheduled for 12:00 AM UTC, you as the admin do not have to take any action.
