Back date an issue's start date

Hi, Is there a way to back date an issue's start date to some time in the past? We are converting an existing project into Jira, and want to carry over records of the completed issues.

Thanks

That depends on how you define "start date".

The "created" date in Jira cannot be altered via the UI if you're using that, but if you are importing data from another system, most of the importers will let you set it.

If you're using a custom date field, then yes, you can edit that any time.

If it's a derived field of some sort, then you'd need to look at the data behind it.
