How to archive a team in Jira Align(don't delete)?


AS clients work through a lot of different org changes and continue to manage these particular changes at each levels of the hierarchy there are some gaps they would lie to account for. They want to archive/clear up existing teams and give them a new start by leaving the JA instance lean and clean.



We recommend to do this around PI boundaries

We don’t recommend to delete a team from either JA or JIRA(as it leads to lost history and messed up historical reports). Our recommendation is to only inactivate the teams in JA.


In Jira cleanup team data-

  • Move all assigned items back to the backlog

  • Make sure all active sprints are removed from the baord

  • Make sure no member is allocated to the team


In Jira Align inactivate the team.

  • Go to Team

  • Select Active=NO


  • Go to Admin console- program

  • remove team associated with the program
