The backup plug-in is being maintained by its owner/maintainers from a new home. The plug-in is still compatible with Hudson, however, the entry points for documentation and issue reporting have been combined in order to provide a single point of entry.
Backup plugin allows archiving and restoring your Hudson home directory.
The Backup plugin adds a new Backup manager item in the Manage Hudson page. This item allows (cf. screenshot below):
- Tweaking backup settings (using the Setup link)
- Backuping Hudson's configuration (using the Backup Hudson configuration link)
- Restoring Hudson's configuration from a previous backup (using the Restore Hudson configuration link)
|Note from the current maintainer|
There are two other alternatives to this plugin:
- The SCM Sync configuration plugin allows automatically tracking changes brought to the global configuration of Hudson and to the jobs configuration into a configuration management system (Subversion, etc.).
- The thinBackup plugin focuses on backuping Hudson's global configuration and jobs configuration. It also offers a scheduling feature (if you think the efforts on this plugin and the Backup one should be merged, just notify us!).
So pick the one which fits your needs
