Can we change issue id of an existing issue to another

vishal03kadam October 31, 2019

Hi, 

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?

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.

Any reason why you want the same issue-key ?

Hi Vickey, 

The reason is we have code commits associated with it.

My company would also like this because we prefer to have the first 25 issues or so be the same id from project to project, mainly dealing with release/testing.  If someone starts a project and does not clone the issues over in the proper order then the id doesn't align anymore.  Or they make new issues before the release/testing issues are cloned this misalignment can happen.
