You'll need version 2.1.3 or higher of Project Configurator.



This section explains how to drive Project Configurator from the command line, so that you can create scripts that export or load complete projects. The method is based on interacting with the JIRA server by issuing http requests to concrete URLs. You need a tool that lets you issue http requests from the command line, as wget or curl. If you are not familiar with wget or curl, it is recommended you have a look first at the manual for these products.

Some examples are provided. Remember that the export and load operations require a user with system administrator permission.

These examples have been tested on Ubuntu Linux 16.04 and they use curl and xmllintBoth programs must be installed on the system where you are going to run the scripts, you can install them with the following commands:

    apt get update

    apt get install curl

    apt get install libxml2-utils

In order to execute the scripts provided, copy them to a folder included in your machine's path for executable files and make them executable.


Auxiliary scripts

The export and import scripts will need the following scripts to work:

wait-task-script
# Usage: $ wait-task-script response-html-file jira-host-url jira-context-path cookies-auth-file

HOST=$2
CONTEXT=$3
BASE_URL="$2/$3"
COOKIES=$4

RESULT_URL=`xmllint --html --xpath '//p[@id="finalURLholder"]/text()' $1 2>> error.txt`
echo "Destination URL $HOST$RESULT_URL"
while [ $RESULT_URL ]
do
 sleep 0.5
 if status-checker-script $1 "-L -b $COOKIES -o $1 $HOST$RESULT_URL"; then
  RESULT_URL=`xmllint --html --xpath '//p[@id="finalURLholder"]/text()' $1 2>> error.txt`
  echo "Destination URL $HOST$RESULT_URL"
 else
  break
 fi
done
echo "Task has finished"

status-checker-script
# Usage: $ status-checker-script response-html-file curl-command

RESPONSE=$1
CURL_CMD=$2
RED='\e[1;31m'
COLOR_END='\e[0m'

CODE=$(curl $CURL_CMD -w "%{http_code}") 

if [ "$CODE" == "200" ] ; then
 exit 0
else
 echo -e ${RED}
 echo "  Something went wrong, http status: $CODE"
 case $CODE in
  "400") echo "  Error in load, please check $RESPONSE";;
  "401") echo "  The user is not logged in or it's not an administrator";;
  "403") echo "  The plugin does not have a valid license";;
  "500") echo "  Error in export, please check $RESPONSE";; 
  *)     echo "  Please check $RESPONSE";; 
 esac
 echo -e ${COLOR_END}
 exit 40
fi


Export script

This is an executable script that exports complete projects. 

export-project-script
# Usage export-project-script jira-host-url jira-context-path admin-user admin-password export-file-name project-key [project-key2 ...] [-O export-options ...]

RESPONSE_HTML="response.html"
COOKIES_FILE="cookies.txt"

USER=$3
PASSWD=$4

HOST=$1
CONTEXT=$2
BASE_URL="$1/$2"
EXPORT_FILE_NAME=$5

PROJECT_PARAMETERS="-F selectedProjectKeys=$6"
MODE=PROJECTS
OPTION_STRING=""

shift 6
while (( "$#" ))
do
    if [ "$MODE" = PROJECTS ]
    then
        if [ "$1" != "-O" ]
        then
            PROJECT_PARAMETERS="$PROJECT_PARAMETERS -F selectedProjectKeys=$1"
        else
            MODE=OPTIONS            
        fi
    else
        OPTION_STRING="$OPTION_STRING -F $1"
    fi
    shift
done

echo "projects param: $PROJECT_PARAMETERS"
echo "options: $OPTION_STRING"

curl  -u "$USER:$PASSWD" --cookie-jar $COOKIES_FILE "$BASE_URL/secure/Dashboard.jspa?os_authType=basic" --head

if status-checker-script $RESPONSE_HTML "-b $COOKIES_FILE -o $RESPONSE_HTML "$BASE_URL/secure/project-export!export.jspa" $PROJECT_PARAMETERS -F "exportScope=FULL_PROJECT" -F "fileName=$EXPORT_FILE_NAME" $OPTION_STRING"; then
    wait-task-script $RESPONSE_HTML $HOST $CONTEXT $COOKIES_FILE
else
    echo "Task has stopped"
fi

Command and options

It is launched with the following command:

export-project-script jira-host-url jira-context-path admin-user admin-password export-file-name project-key [project-key2 ...] [-O export-options ...]
  • jira-host-url: Host part of the exporting instance base URL, including port if needed (for example http://my-server:2990).
  • jira-context-path: Context part of the exporting instance base URL (for example "jira").  Note that jira-host-url + "/" + jira-context-path equals "JIRA base URL" (for example, http://my-server:2990/jira)
  • admin-user: Admin's username.
  • admin-password: Admin's password.
  • export-file-name: Name of the exported file, remember it will be left in "projectconfigurator" folder under directory $JIRA_HOME/export (for example 'exported-projects-10-04-2017-zip').
  • project-key [project-key2 ...]: Keys of the projects to export, at least one must be provided.
  • export-options: Additional export options, see this link for details. Each export option must be specified as key=value, preferrably enclosed in double quotes.


Import script

This is an executable script that imports complete projects. 

import-project-script
# Usage import-project-script jira-host-url jira-context-path admin-user admin-password import-file-name [-O import-options ...]

RESPONSE_HTML="response.html"
COOKIES_FILE="cookies.txt"

USER=$3
PASSWD=$4

HOST=$1
CONTEXT=$2
BASE_URL="$1/$2"
IMPORT_FILE_NAME=$5

OPTION_STRING=""

shift 5

if [ "$1" == "-O" ]
then
    shift
    while (( "$#" ))
    do
        OPTION_STRING="$OPTION_STRING -F $1"
        shift
    done
fi

echo "options: $OPTION_STRING"

curl  -u "$USER:$PASSWD" --cookie-jar $COOKIES_FILE "$BASE_URL/secure/Dashboard.jspa?os_authType=basic" --head

if status-checker-script $RESPONSE_HTML "-b $COOKIES_FILE -o $RESPONSE_HTML "$BASE_URL/secure/full-project-upload!stepZero.jspa" -F "projectFile=$IMPORT_FILE_NAME" $OPTION_STRING" ; then
    # as this script follows redirects, it can go through the three import steps
    wait-task-script $RESPONSE_HTML $HOST $CONTEXT $COOKIES_FILE
else
    echo "Task has stopped"
fi

Command and options

It is launched with the following command:

import-project-script jira-host-url jira-context-path admin-user admin-password import-file-name [-O import-options ...]


  • jira-host-url: Host part of the importing instance base URL, including port if needed.

  • jira-context-path: Context part of the importing instance base URL.
  • admin-user: Admin's username.
  • admin-password: Admin's password.
  • import-file-name: name of the file to be imported, remember it must be placed before importing in "projectconfigurator" folder under directory $JIRA_HOME/import.
  • import-options: additional import options, see this link for details. Each import option must be specified as key=value, preferrably enclosed in double quotes.

Temporary files and error handling

Take into account that...

  • These scripts create two temporary files in the same directory where they have been invoked. These files are "cookies.txt" (it holds the authentication cookie for the session in JIRA) and "response.html" (it keeps the last HTML response received from JIRA).
  • Scripts include a basic level of error handling. If any of the interactions with the server returns an error HTML status, the script will stop and display the error status with its intended meaning. The last HTML response (that came with the error HTML status) will be left in the "response.html" file. For example, if you try to run the export script in a version previous to 2.1.3, the response.html will show the trace of a NullPointerException.

  Something went wrong, http status: 500
  Error in export, please check response.html

Task has finished

As we can see, the trace ended with an http status: 500, and it says that we should check response.html.

Inside response.html, we can find:

As we can see, something in Project Configurator failed. After searching in PCP's wiki or contacting support, we find that this error happens because we tried to export a project with agile boards from a JIRA instance with JIRA Agile v6.7.6, and Project Configurator is only compatible with JIRA Agile v6.7.7 or higher.

  Something went wrong, http status: 400
  Error in load, please check response.html

Task has stopped

This trace ended with an http status: 400, again, we check response.html to see what happened.

In response.html, we find:

An error occurred:

File C:\Atlassian_tutorial\myPlugin\target\jira\home\import\projectconfigurator\wrongfile does not exist or JIRA does not have permissions to open and read it.

Which means the filename was wrong, it doesn't exist or it may be missing its extension.
