Archiving old tickets in Jira


Please assist:

I have many tickets in JIRA which are clogging my JIRA server space. Is there any way to archive ticket data in JIRA so as to save space but making sure if we need old ticket details, we can get it from JIRA archive.

You could try import/export project.

  1. Move all old tickets to some project 
  2. Export it
  3. Delete project

There are a number of methods explained at

One of the option, that is not mentioned on the page, is to set a security level on the issues that you want to hide. You can have a security level that is visible only to the admins and that will hide the issues from everyone else.

All of them comes with pros and cons. I guess you have to pick the one that suits you best!
