How to rest Issue number to 0?


For the test and understand purpose we started creating sample issues in the project. later on we removed them. but the number series is incrementing from latest issues.

we want to rest that index to 0. How can i do that?

Er, there's a far more easy and simple way to do it, without support.

Write down your project settings (schemes)

Delete the project

Add the project again and set all the schemes again.

yeah we can do that. if support is taking long time then will do same.

Hi Bala,

This is easy to set:

  1. Stop JIRA
  2. Perform a database backup;
  3. Run the following SQL statement:
    update project set pcounter = '0' where pkey = 'YOURPROJECTKEY';
  4. Start JIRA once again and try to create a new issue.

Oh, my apologies.

Only after sending my last comment I noticed that you're running JIRA OnDemand. The steps that I provided you also works for OnDemand, but you will need to rise an issue in and ask for the support engineers to perform it for you.

Best regards,

Thanks Lucas, will do
