Is it possible to perform a bulk archive of issues in Jira?

We are unable to find the "archive" option in the bulk change feature to archive completed issues within a project.

Hi Margarita,

You can actually use Jira CLI to accomplish this! Jira CLI is a helpful command-line automation app that enables you to bulk complete tasks that are otherwise time-consuming through the UI. 

There's an archiveIssues command actually, and you can fill it in with the parameters you need, for example:

--action archiveIssues --jql "project = "PROJECT_KEY" AND status = "Done""

You can try it the app free for 30 days. Let me know if it works for you, and feel free to contact our support team if you run into any problems.

Hi Margarita,

Jira Cloud does not have the ability to archive individual issues. You do have the ability to archive projects though. So you could create a project specifically for archived issues if you want and then do a bulk move of issues to that project.

Thank you, John!

Hello @Margarita 

Jira doesn't have this functionality. Also, there are no third party apps that support this. There is only an option to bulk delete the issues. The only thing that can be archived are the projects.
