Introduction:
Is there a way to backup the work we do for Ad Hoc custom reports or any other customizations we manage in Jaspersoft? We are using Unified Dashboards CABI 6.3 with Spectrum 10.2.3
Instructions:
You can run a command which comes shipped with Jaspersoft which will export your Jaspersoft files into a compressed folder. You can also re-import the same compressed folder to restore the data. 


1. Using a terminal, nav to <JASPER Root>/buildomatic 

such as: C:\Program Files\CA\SC\CA Business Intelligence\buildomatic 

2. Run the following to export everything into a .zip: 

./js-export --output-zip <backup filename>.zip --everything 

3. To import it, run this: 

./js-import --input-zip <backupfilename>.zip
