Backup Scheduling Plugin

Challenge: 

Running backups is crucial. Usually users write scripts or cron jobs to perform these backups for the Jenkins platform. Maintaining the backup scripts is cumbersome and error-prone.

Solution: 

The Backup Scheduling plugin, available with Jenkins Enterprise by CloudBees, greatly simplifies the job of doing backups. You create a backup by simply creating a new type of job called Backup Jenkins. You can choose to backup job configurations, build records, system configurations or any combination thereof. In addition, since a backup job is a Jenkins job, you can easily relocate the configuration to a different system if required - no porting of shell scripts!
