Raise project counter from 100 to 7000


in our new Jira enviroment we d like to start the projekt counter where to old one stopped.

For example: The last Ticket key in the od Jira setup is XXX-6580. In our new Jira we d like to start with XXX-7000 and not again with XXX-. Is there a possibility to raise the projekt counter to 7000?

To create 7000 Tickets manually and delete them afterwards is not an option :)

Two basic options:

1. Create lots of issues and delete them. Not manually, but a CSV import, or a simply Jelly script would be easy to generate in a spreadsheet to create them, and bulk-edit to delete. If you've got the script-runner plugin, that could be used to do it as well.

2. Stop Jira, take a backup of the database, change the field "pcounter" on table "project" and restart Jira. (This will NOT work if Jira is running, you must stop it)

Hi Nic,

thanks for the quick reply! We are going with option 2.
