Hello Rizwan,

You will have to restore an old (automatic generated or not) import of your instance. You can do it using JIRA's .xml file or a database backup file. I believe these are the only ways to restore data lost and both need the backup file of when the information was in your instance. I hope you have one of these!

The .xml file of JIRA should be located in JIRA_Home/export/
