Can I increment the Jira issue number for future tickets, as a cloud user?

By evil coincidence, our JIRA ticket numbers and github Pull Request numbers are almost in sync. This causes a confusion. The latest ticket number in the project is 1797. I'd like to add 1000, so our next ticket is 2798, and so on. As a cloud user, I'm guessing we don't have our own database – is there any way to do this?

NOTE: We have integrated github and Jira, so the JIRA ticket is linked to the PR, but we still manage to get confused.

Not with SQL, directly (although you could ask Atlassian support)

An easier trick might be to import 1000 issues from CSV and then use a script to delete them via REST

Yep. The "do by creating and deleting 1000" issues approach is going to be the easiest way. smile
