Please JQL query to find out what issues within our instance have seen since the last 12 months

In our instance we have more than 60.000 issues. I want to archive some of these issues based on the criteria of issues that no body has looked at in the last 12 months, that are just laying there and nobody is reading the content. Is there a way to know if an issue has been seen in the last 12months?


Would someone be so kind to suggest q JQL query formula.

There isn't one.  JIRA doesn't record "last viewed"

You could think about "last updated" - if an issue hasn't had a comment, edit or transition in X months, you can consider it "old" and think about archiving it.  JQL is just "updated < -365d "

I'm using JIRA 7 and I just tried a simple JQL test 

lastViewed <= now()

It worked, so there seems to be a lastViewed field / function in my instance.

I've no plugins installed other than the Automation and Portfolio plugin from Atlassian.

Try lastViewed >= startOfYear()
