Hi Brendan,

Would it be easier if you create a new project after deleting the project? So you can set the project key back again to the newly created project?

If you would like to reset the number, this is thus far the simplest method I could think of.

Hope this helps, cheers :)

Yes, if it's not OnDemand. You have to make a database change.

Thanks for the reply. Does this mean I need to contact Atlassian to perform this?

No, you can also simply delete the entire project and recreate it with the same key and choice of schemes.
