We have some obsolete issue types. Most of the project has many such issues.
Would like to archive these. But, should be able to retrieve when required.
Have any idea ?
Fyi, I use Jira 5.1.3.
I think a good option will be to move all such issues to a new project and remove all permissions to the project. You can then take a backup, keep it for restoring later and maybe delete the project.
My suggestion is to keep it offline without permissions but if the performance is a worry, then delete it.
You can try introduce security level for e.g. fake role or group and use bulk change to apply new level to all obsolete issues(you must assign this role to you account, after finish - remove your user from this role). If you need to see this issues, you just assign this role/group. Not beauty, but must work =)
There is currently no way of achieving this without jira default configuration.
But I do't think that this will satisfy you :-)
One messy solution:
You can hide the options of the select-list with custom css.
