We generate thousands of Jira issues each month.
We archive issues which are very old to reduce the size of the database/index and improve performance.
Occasionally, we want to un-archive >1,000 issues but currently I do not see any way to do this as a bulk operation (i.e. not individually). I can generate the list if issues to un-archive (export to CSV and select from there).
It seems that Atlassian may have not seen archiving the way customers will use it and left out bulk un-archiving from the functionality.
Does anyone have a method to bulk un-archive?
Alternatively, can you bulk update archived issues via CSV import? (Probably not but if you don't ask..., plus it might be a way out of this for jira-system-administrators).
There is no bulk option for this, here a feature request you can vote for :
You can try to do it with the REST API
Create a JQL that find all archive issue you want to restore and create a loop to restore them with the API
