How to restore a deleted project


We deleted by mistake a project in Jira (cloud version) and we would need to restore it.

Could you please let me know how we can do it?

Hi @Jorge Trigo ,

you can do that if you have a backup. If you do not have a backup, then you're lost.

You can restore from a backup if cloud provides it. HOWEVER, the restore will OVERWRITE all the current data. So anything you've done since the deletion will be gone. The other option is to restore to a different instance of JIRA and use the Project Management tool (paid) from the marketplace. both instances of JIRA must be the same release. Deleting anything is a bad idea because restoring anything from a backup and overwriting current data is the only solution. The project management tool will work with projects, but not issues, fields, workflows, etc.
