We have a local server installation of JIRA 7.14. Once we have completed all of the issues or tasks how do we close a project. I only see the option to delete which we do not want to do. I've scanned through the help sections but I do not see anything that mentions making it done, finished or even archived.
There's no notion to "Close" a project in JIRA. The best way to can do it (and how JIRA Teams often do it) is they create a JIRA Permission Scheme called "Archived Permission Scheme" or "Read Permission Scheme" and set the permissions so that NOBODY can view that project except system admins or whichever you like.
Administrators have to do permission changes.
JIRA doesn't really have a "close" because a lot of projects don't end, and given that "change the permissions" is something you want to do as a result of closing a project, you might as well do it that way. An extra flag isn't really needed.
