Once the Revyz Backup & Restore app has been installed in your site, data from your Jira cloud site is automatically backed-up every 24 hours into the secure Revyz cloud data store. The Revyz cloud is built on AWS’s public cloud infrastructure.

Backup - salient points

Data backup frequency

  • The first backup occurs automatically as soon as the app is installed into your Jira cloud site, no additional action is needed.

    • The first backup may take significant amount of time, depending on the number of issues that exist in your site along with the volume of attachment data.

  • Subsequent backups are automatically triggered at 12:00 AM UTC following the completion of the first backup.

    • Due to the incremental nature of the backup system, subsequent backups after the first backup are significantly faster as only data that has changed is backed-up
