Repository tools command to back up Jazz Foundation Service indexes

Use the backupJFSIndexes command to back up resource description framework (RDF), text indices, and work item indices to a .zip file.

Purpose

In addition to resource description framework (RDF) and text indices, work item indices can be backed up when you use the online backupJFSIndexes command. For example, you can start a change and configuration management (CCM) server, and then run repotools-ccm -backupJFSIndexes toFile=indices_backup.zip. The resulting indices_backup.zip file includes the work item indices directory.
Important: The server must be running when you run the command.
