ThinBackup is a Jenkins plugin that allows you to perform backups of your Jenkins configuration and data. Here's a step-by-step guide on how to take a Jenkins backup using ThinBackup:


1. Install ThinBackup Plugin:

  • Log in to your Jenkins instance.

  • Navigate to "Manage Jenkins" > "Manage Plugins" > "Available."

  • Search for "ThinBackup" in the "Filter" box.

  • Select the "ThinBackup" plugin and click on "Install without restart."

2. Configure ThinBackup:

  • After installing the ThinBackup plugin, navigate to "Manage Jenkins" > "Tools and Actions."

  • Scroll down to the "ThinBackup" section.

  • Configure the backup settings according to your requirements. You can specify the backup location, what to include or exclude, and the backup frequency.

I configured the Backup Directory to '/var/backup', Before setting this up make sure you have this folder available on the Jenkins server. The below configuration is set to run Full Backup every day at 12:30.

[root@siddhesh ~]# ls /var/backup/

3. Perform a Manual Backup:

  • Once you've configured ThinBackup, you can perform a manual backup to test the configuration.

  • Navigate to "Manage Jenkins" > "ThinBackup."

  • Click on the "Backup Now" button to initiate a manual backup.
