Captures up-to-date copies of your Git repositories, filesystem data and database data.
At a glance status
Keep your team informed on the status of a back up with the progress page. All visitors during a back up will be automatically forwarded to Bitbucket Server once completed.
The command-line interface means you can use your favourite task scheduler (e.g. cron, Windows Task Scheduler) to automate backups.
The Bitbucket Server Backup Client contains two command-line programs that can be used to backup and restore a Bitbucket Server.
The backup client generates a full backup of a Bitbucket Server. The command-line tool is easily scriptable and is intended for use in regular, scheduled backups.
The restore client restores a Bitbucket Server from a backup file. It can restore to a new database if the original database is not available (for instance, in case of a hardware failure).
The Bitbucket Server Backup Client requires Java 8 or above. Due to a bug in Java, it requires the additional command line option "-noverify" when running on Java 8u11. For more details on the problem, see BSERV-5069.
You can find more information about the Bitbucket Server Backup Client on the Bitbucket Server data recovery and backups page.
Users visiting Bitbucket Server during a back up are shown backup progress and are automatically forwarded to Bitbucket Server when the backup completes.
