My project has been deleted, how can I recover it

ELFAPP Technologies May 30, 2024

An administrator’s nightmare story would be waking up one morning and discovering a project has been deleted from their Jira site. This is a horror story to an admin, even though there’s a trash folder within Jira cloud, there are instances where a project can be mistakenly deleted due to oversight. When that happens, the project is completely gone and cannot be recovered.

To avoid situations like these, protect all your projects by ensuring you have a daily backup, you can even go further to ensure it is done every hour or 10 minutes. This ensures you can have that peace of mind knowing that if something does go wrong, there’s a backup strategy in place that will help alleviate pain points.

The Backup Projects for Jira provides a complete extraction of your projects with all fields, comments, labels, work logs etc which you can easily restore by importing the file using the new and improved CSV importer provided by Jira.


Allowing you the administrator to be assured that even in the event of a deleted project, you can easily recover your data without the need of fire fighting and raising alarm bells as though there’s an imminent and unavoidable danger. Try out our app by downloading it from the Atlassian Marketplace or your Jira site under Apps > Find new apps and follow our two-step “getting started” documentation on configuring the app to your specifications.

We’re certain that if you’re new or moving to the Cloud, this will enable you to get started with everything Cloud and be an administrator that doesn’t need to firefight all the time.
