Impact on changing Project key on existing requests and knowledgebase

I wanted to know the impact of changing the project key. What happens to existing requests? And the knowledgebase linked to the old key (confluence cloud) can it impact anything? Or can we point to the new project key easily?

Is it possible for customers to still access older requests with the old key?

Changing the Jira project key will not affect anything. Existing issues will just get the new key, and can be reached by the old key as well because Jira will redirect it to the new key. And yes, customers will still be able to access old requests.

I had 1 more question, what about the knowledgebase articles in Confluence cloud linked to this old project key? I know we cannot change the project key in Confluence, I'm assuming the old key will redirect to the same project in jira service desk.

In short, customers will be able to access knowledgebase articles even though we cannot change the project key in Confluence cloud.

All existing links in Confluence to Jira will still work since Jira keeps track of the old project key and will redirect any links to the old key to the new key. So your customers would still be able to get from your KBs to the linked issue without any issues.
