How to find inactive projects list?

Suppose I have 1000 projects in my jira instance. How can I find the list of all projects that are not active (any updation) from last one year? 

Please suggest solution if we can use REST API for this?

Thanks in advance!

Hi @Narendra_Kumar ,

Under Administration > Projects there's a column where you can see the last time an issue was updated in the project.

@edwin, is that an image from Cloud? Not sure it is and I do not have that field in my Projects page and I checked another instance as well w/o success. I wonder if this is Server specific?

You're right, i missed that this is a question related to cloud.

@Narendra_Kumar Please disregard my above answer.

Hi @edwin yeah this is not available for cloud instance.

You can run below SQL on your Jira database. It'll give you list of projects which are not updated after a specific date and time. You might have to tweak the date and time part in the 'where' clause. I ran it on PostgreSQL.

pname,pkey,created as project_createtd,updated as project_updatetd
where updated <= '2019-10-01T02:15:00.102738Z'
