Can we change issue id of an existing issue to another


I have issue ID ABC-001, ABC-002 which was accidentally moved to project XYZ where the issue ID changes to XYZ-004, XYZ-005 now I again moved it to ABC project but now the issue id is ABC-003, ABC-004. How can I restore the original ID. 


ABC-003 should be ABC-001 and ABC-004 should be ABC-002 is it possible?

Any reason why you want the same issue-key ?

Hi Vickey, 

The reason is we have code commits associated with it. 

It can be done at Database level but changing issue key is not a recommended action though - read the following KD on project key change and issue key change.
