Ive read thru this article.

With the information above "Indexing failed for Issue - '76728'"
How do i find issue 76728. its not in an issue number, the issue key isnt identified, and Im pretty sure none of my projects have up to 70k ticket numbers.

This would help me identify the offending ticket and delete and retry.

Hi @Jeremy Cejka ,

76728 is issue's id, so one of the possible ways is to use JQL:

id = 76728 

@Hana Kučerová 

I had tried that previously.

tried both id and issue = 76728

None of the projects I have individually have more than the incremented ticket number at above 40k 

Just realized that last part is irrelevent.  lol


Not sure else how to find the offending ticket.

@Jeremy Cejka 

If you insert this URL to the browser:


What happens?

Thank you.

jiradb=# SELECT id,issuenum,project FROM jiraissue WHERE id=76728;

  id   | issuenum | project


76728 |     2058 |   14505


Going backwards to determine the project number,

Ive figured out the issuekey. 

But its not visible in the interface.


Ironically your way was much easier, but it was a good lesson above getting back into sql queries.  


Using your method validated that the issuekey matches.


It returns a slew of xml data for the ticket. But the ticket number cant be found in JIRA. 


So I guess I just purge it from the database? 


Ill wait on your advice to figure out what to do next, now that we found the offending ticket.

Hi @Jeremy Cejka ,

I found this question (and it looks like you too :-)), so we probably know now, which application is problematic.

Is there some Planning poker application installed in your Jira? If so, which one? Is there a newer version available?

My concern about this problem is removal of one issue won't be enough and the error appears again.

Also, if you uninstall the application, there could still be problems, because of the data stored in the database.

I would recommend you to contact the vendor of the application. There's a good chance they know about this problem and they should provide you steps, how to fix this without damaging other data.
