Jama Connect User Guide

Migrate existing directories

If you created your backup with a Jama Connect XML file or with SQL proprietary database software, you must manually migrate certain directories (folders).

A .jama backup file includes the database plus all necessary directories. However, an XML backup file or a proprietary database backup includes only the database.

  1. In the /data directory, delete these directories:

    • tenant

    • ActiveMQData

    • elasticsearch

    These directories are restored when you restart Jama Connect on the new server.

  2. Migrate these directories accordingly:

    Directories

    /attachments/**

    Move to the new application server at /data/contour/attachments/**

    /avatars/**

    Move to the new application server at /data/contour/avatars/**

    /diagrams/**

    Move to the new application server at /data/contour/diagrams/**

    /metrics/**

    Move to the new application server at /data/contour/metrics/**

    /reports/**

    Move to the new application server at /data/contour/reports/**

    ** All directories and files below the given folder

  3. On the new application server, set permissions and ownership for all directories with these commands:

    chown -R 91:91 /data/contour
    chmod -R u+rwX /data/contour
