Bulk Unarchieve/ Restore Issues


Hi , 


I have a Project by the name of MBFF and it had 789 defects in it. I have archived all the 789 defects. 

Is there a way to bulk restore/unarchive them and also can I migrate the issue type of these issues from Defect to Bug ?


If I download a CSV (All fields) export of archived issues (Defects) , then bulk upload it..

Will it be uploaded as a new issues ? 

Can it be uploaded as Bug?

Hello @Harshit Grover 

This post indicates there is not a Bulk Restore option, but that you can use the JIRA REST API to restore multiple issues at once.

I believe the migration to a different issue type will need to be a separate step.

I don't believe you can use the CSV import process to restore the issues nor to change the Issue Type for an issue.
