Change creation date of JIRA issue in GreenHopper

We are in a situation where we need to change the creation date of some JIRA issues, so that Greenhopper can generate more accurate burndown chart for the project.

The reason is we created large amount of issues during the sprint, and we want to move them into the start of the project.

We found a way to change the issue creation date by updating jiraissue table in the database, but burndown chart remains unchanged in Greenhopper.

Does Greenhopper keep another copy of issue creation date? and how we can regenerate the burndown chart if we change the issue creation date?

Will appreciate it if someone can shed a light on this.

Did you stop Jira, run the SQL, restart Jira and then re-index it when you made the change?

Jira caches stuff, so you can't run SQL safely while it's running, and hacking the database (for issue data) always means the index goes out of line, so you absolutely need to re-index.

If you have re-indexed, then I'm not sure what the problem is, but I'd try the integrity checker next.

Thanks Nic, restarting/re-indexing JIRA did the trick, and it now worked.

Is there any way of doing the same with Jira on-demand ?
