Hi, how can I reset all the changes that I've done in JIRA. I want to reset all the changes, removed all the created issues, projects, users.

You did not say which platforms you are using.

If I understand correctly, there is nothing in the database you want, so why not just uninstall and reinstall from scratch?


If you can experiment I would attempt to follow the JIRA database migration process

1) shutdown JIRA

2) create a new database

3) remove the dbconfig.xml file

4) Restart JIRA

JIRA should take you through the database initialization procedure

Anyone please? Or should I re-install?
