In our organization we are using jira5.0.7 which is having more than 1000 projects. Out of this 700 projects are inactive projects(We notice that this 700 projects are not creating any issues for last 180 days ). Because of these projects our jira performace is too slow. Number of issues also getting increased day by day.so we need to delete all these inactive projects.
Kindly suggest one easy way to delete all these projects.
Hi Jayasingh, there's a documentation that provide some methods to archive the projects: https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Archiving+a+Project#ArchivingaProject-Offlinearchiving
After that, you can consider the suggestion from Nic from another post: https://answers.atlassian.com/questions/135915/how-to-delete-a-jira-project-from-database-with-all-issues
However, always backup your data(xml or dump) and home directory to avoid any data loss.
A new feature of bulk delete was created earlier which you can consider to vote the feature as well: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRA-31028
