Docs latest icon.png Welcome to the latest SEP sesam documentation version 4.4.3. Beefalo/Beefalo V2. For previous documentation version(s), check JIRA archive.


SEP sesam only supports a complete restore of the JIRA database configuration. Restoring JIRA database configuration is simple and straightforward. It can be triggered from the Menu bar -> Activities -> Restore. GUI restore wizard guides you through the process of restoring your data. For details on how to configure a restore task and a description of different restore options, see Standard Restore Procedure. Only JIRA restore-specific steps and options are described in this section.

Note that SEP sesam provides the web Restore Assistant interface which is designed to be more intuitive and offers additional advanced options compared to GUI restore wizard while, on the other hand, it does not support the restore of special tasks types, such as JIRA, NDMP, Oracle, etc. For these task types you can only use the GUI restore wizard to restore your data.


To ensure error-free operation of SEP sesam and improve performance, make sure that the following conditions are met:

  • Ensure that you have sufficient restore permissions and access rights.
  • Ensure that there is enough free space on the target system to which you are restoring your data.

Configuring JIRA database configuration restore

Check the standard restore procedure for general instructions on how to configure a restore task. This section only describes JIRA-specific steps.

From the SEP sesam GUI menu bar, select Activities -> Restore -> select the save set for restore. In the third step of the wizard: Select task, from the list of the save sets click the desired version to restore, and check the option Complete restore of selected task. Click Next.

  1. From the SEP sesam GUI menu bar, select Activities -> Restore. The New Restore Task window opens.
  2. Select what you want to restore. You can search savesets by task name or by filename or path.
  3. Under the Saved in period drop-down lists, specify the time frame for which you want to conduct the search. Click Next.
  4. The search results are displayed. From the list of savesets matching your query, click the version you want to restore. Note that the option Complete restore of selecetd task is set by default. Click Next.
  5. JIRA restore select task Beefalo V2.jpg

  6. In the Target Settings window (previously Save and Start), leave all the options unchanged and click Next.
  7. JIRA restore target Beefalo V2.jpg

  8. In the final step of the restore wizard (Summary window), you can review all the settings of your restore task. You can start the restore immediately or save the restore task as a template for future use.

A restore task can be scheduled like any other task. If you want to add a restore task to the schedule, see Scheduling Restore.

SEP Tip.png Tip
While the import is running, check your JIRA_HOME/logs/catalina.out logfile to obtain detailed information about the import process. Note that importing your backup data might take some time, during which your JIRA instance is not accessible.

Monitoring restore

You can view the status of your restore jobs by selecting Job State -> Restores from the Main Selection. Restore overview provides detailed information on the last run of restore jobs, including the task name, status (successful, error, in queue ...), start and stop time of the last backup, data size, throughput, client and message.

As of 4.4.3 Beefalo V2, you can also monitor the restore progress using the Web UI. For details, see SEP sesam Web UI.
