A lot of the issues that get auto-created by our mail handler are only relevant if handled inside a few days. I'd like to setup a nightly scheduled task that deletes older issues that match certain criteria. How can I do this?
You'll need to write something to do this, there's no automatic delete in Jira (it's not something you'd normally do in an issue tracker, the whole point is to keep and track the information)
I'd construct a filter for the issues you want to destroy, then set up a Jelly script that deletes the issues in that filter, and, once you've proved it works, add it as a regularly executing service.
Remember though, there is NO record of a delete in Jira other than a hole in the project key number sequence. So be careful.
