@Zeev Liak welcome to the Community! (posting answer here as well as your question posted 2x)
Project Keys cannot be reused. Once created, even if the space or project is deleted, they still remain in the Metadata of your instance/installation and cannot be reused or reassigned.
Here is a related article regarding Project Management and Keys.
Hi Zeev - Welcome to the Atlassian Community!
It is not possible right now in server as there is an open feature request to provide that functionality. You can vote for and follow along here: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRASERVER-34945
The functionality exists to reuse it after deletion in Jira Cloud.
Hi Sujata - Congrats on being a Rising Star!
You have to delete the entire project from Jira - including moving it out of the trash if it is still in there.
Also, please note that if ANY issue on that project has been moved to another project, then you still will not be able to re-use the project key again, even if the project has been deleted.
