Create a backup policy

Before running a backup for the first time, you need to create a backup policy for the product. The policy includes the product you select to back up and whether to include attachments in the backup. For Confluence, you can back up personal spaces.

To create a new backup policy:

  1. Go to admin.atlassian.com. Select your organization if you have more than one.

  2. Select Settings > Data management.

  3. Select Backup and restore.

  4. Select Create backup policy if this is your first backup policy, otherwise select Create new backup policy.

  5. Select the product to back up. The products listed here are only those that are part of the organization. If a product is missing from the list, make sure that you have organization admin permissions.

  6. You can choose whether to include attachments in your backup. For Confluence, you can choose whether to include personal spaces in the backup. Then, select Next.

  7. Review the backup policy, then select Run backup.

If successful, the backup starts running, and a new backup policy for the product is added to the Backup policy table.
