Clean Project from all issues



I am trying to replicate production instance to development instance without issues. I need a fast way to delete all issues from certain projects. We are using many plugins and we have a lot of customizations in our production instance that we can't use configuration manager to migrate configurations. 


We're looking for a way that is faster that manually bulk delete 1000 which is the maximum number allowed by Jira.

There is no faster way than bulk delete.  Apart from the ui bits where you tell it what to delete, the bulk delete goes as fast as it can.  It takes your list and calls the issue delete code for each item.  Which is what any other method would have to do.

You might be able to go a bit faster, or at least leave it unattended and doing more than 1000 in a batch, if you wrote a script that used the REST API to get the list and then issue a delete against it.
