How can we identify inactive JIRA Agile Boards

I need to identify all unused/inactive JIRA Agile boards as sometimes Manage Boards page is taking more than 30 seconds and leading to timeout.

I would like to remove all unused boards instead of changing timeout value.


Any better suggestions are always appreciated.....

I'm also waiting for some info. Can someone from Atlassian provide answer to this question?

If you have scrum boards then you can go in and check the sprint dates for the current/last sprint. If a project is inactive then it is highly likely that sprints have not been planned in the recent few months.

If it is a kanban board, then you may want to run the created/resolved chart for the filter/project in that kanban board and see. Again, if the project is inactive then not many new issues would had been created inrecent past.

This is a very subjective issue as the definition of inactive can vary from 3 months to 3 years. So, it is unlikely that you may get an automated solution to identify this . This process is best investigated manually one byone.


I like this solution. I started cleaning up my company's Jira Board mess using your suggestions.
