Hi @Noor Ilham,

Ok please reach out to our customer and follow these steps (they might be a bit different for On-Prem though):

  1. Open a ticket with SysAid’s Customer Care team to deliver a daily backup of Your data at no cost to You. You will have the option of choosing to receive Your database in MySQL format or Your attachments files or both.
  2. Once Customer Care enables this for your account, the daily backup files will be available for SysAid Administrator users in Settings > Customize > Events Logs. Separate list items will be created per type of backup.
  3. The download link in each item expires after one week.

Reach out via live chat or open a ticket on our Customer Portal to our Customer Care team to activate this on your environment

@Noor Ilham, migrating only partial data is a special project with additional cost. 

And yet it is still unclear what is the purpose of the migration? When you import all the historical you are continuing your old SysAid helpdesk with same settings and same content. 

Let us know, 


What is the cost for this special project?


Purpose of migration : OS upgrade and current sysad having issue. Sysaid support is already taking so much time that already impact to business operation. We looking to perform clean installation on the existing server and perform import all historical data without performing database restore activity.
