How can I deactivate an entire JIRA instance?

We've installed a new JIRA instance, and would like to keep the old one (5.2.11) around as an archive. It would thus make sense to "deactivate" the latter, that is, making it read-only and disable the creation of issues.

What's the best way to achive that? I haven't seen any global "deactivate" option anywhere.

Create a new permission scheme which only allows users to browse projects. Apply the scheme to all projects making it read only.

Yep, that seems like the best way to go. Thanks!

Under the Global Permissions you can remove the Users/ Group from the JIRA Users Permission.
