Jira issue archiving solution?

A few years ago I received an announcment of an Atlassian project to develop a proper issue archiving solution. I think I was even asked to take part in a beta release. I haven't heard anything since then. Does anyone know what happened to this initiative?

I think they looked at it (I had several discussions with them about it, and offered a beta too), then the data-centre initiative took hold and they moved on to doing that as it added more value.  There was some stuff about adding it into DC at a later stage, but I don't know how that is progressing.

Thanks - so same experience as me;). -David

There is no built-in solution for this at the moment.

Depending on your needs, there are 2 practical ways to address this:

  1. If you don't have performance problems due to those issues, then move them to an "archive project", from which you remove the view permissions. If you decide to restore an issue from the archive, use the standard Move Issue function.
  2. If you want to reduce the load on your server, but don't need to restore the old issues, then export them to some format, and then delete them in JIRA.
    You can export them to CSV (although you will loose the metadata, like attachments) or PDF (which can preserve you all the details).
