I wish to close a project as i am leaving the organisation. There are a few items that have been earmarked for review later in the year whether a Phase 2 or a future project , budget depending.
i want to close or archive the project so that it is read only then open a new project with those that require action for someone else to take over. I would like to retain the IC-numbers as these are already given to the Stakeholders and are referenced in the documents the data was imported into Jira from. This enables an audit trail.
Will Jira retain the numbers? is it better to archive the project or close it?
In case "IC number" would be a custom field you could "copy it over" to the new project (by means as in "clone") - they will not change unless there is some automation or other logic behind it.
If understood all correctly you are going to sunset the existing project - so the high level steps are to
- create a new one
- clone (copy over) some issues that require further attention in future (this probably needs the most attention, f.e. an option would be to move the issues)
- and finally you set the old project to read only
If IC Number is only the internal speak for the issue key in your company then indeed what Jack and Joe mentioned applies.
