There isn't an easy way to do this really, and when you say "query", you haven't said whether you want SQL or JQL

As a starter in Jira define two filters - one for "updated in the last 6 months" and a second for "updated more than 6 months ago" (both are for ALL issues). Create a dashboard, and put two gadgets on it, both "filter statistics" and grouped by the field "project", one for each filter. That will give you a feel for the age of projects because ones with a large "updated > 6 months ago" and little or no activity in the other gadget will be "inactive"

I wrote a report to do something like this automatically a while ago. I hope to be able to actually finish it and upgrade it to v6 over Christmas...

Hi Nic,

OOPS I was looking for a MySQL query. Is this query correct?

mysql->SELECT count(id) FROM project WHERE ID NOT IN (SELECT DISTINCT(project) FROM jiraissue WHERE updated > DATE_SUB(NOW(), INTERVAL6 MONTH)) ORDER BY pname;

I need to get the count of active and/or inactive project over last 6 months.

Thanks and Regards,

Rohan

That SQL looks right to me, yes.

Nic,

The above query will get the count of Inactive project(issue updated over last 6 months) but there can be a case where in an issue is created within last 6 months but not updated. In this case even this project is an Active one, so I need to check both the conditions i.e. Created and Updated. Hence which of the following query will give me correct result.

1. SELECT count(id) FROM project WHERE ID NOT IN (SELECT DISTINCT(project) FROM jiraissue WHERE updated > DATE_SUB(NOW(), INTERVAL 6 MONTH) and created > DATE_SUB(NOW(), INTERVAL 6 MONTH));

2.SELECT count(id) FROM project WHERE ID NOT IN (SELECT DISTINCT(project) FROM jiraissue WHERE updated > DATE_SUB(NOW(), INTERVAL 6 MONTH) or created > DATE_SUB(NOW(), INTERVAL 6 MONTH));

Note : Both the abobe queries are for Inactive projects and I am confused over "and" and "or" in the query.

Thanks and Regards,

Rohan

For issues which are created and then not touched, I don't think you need worry - the updated date is set to the same as the created date when they're created. So I don't think you need to worry about the created date.
