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
Data that is backed up
Supported Project types:
Jira Software (JSW)
Jira Service Management (JSM)
Jira Work Management (JWM)

At this point of time we support the following Jira data objects to be backed-up:

More data objects being supported over the course of time - Please open a support ticket if you see something missing that you need ASAP
Your backup data is automatically retained for a period of 365 days or 1 year
On demand backups
As an administrator you can trigger an on-demand backup at any point of time and also select what you would like to backup i.e. Jira issues data or Jira configuration data, Asset configuration data or all of them.
On demand backups can be triggered from the “Backup” menu page
Lets review how to use each of the capabilities that the Revyz app provides for backing up your Jira data.
