Not possible. Start fresh; a new cloud site would do it. That said, what are you trying to achieve by resetting it?

Or a new project, with a different key.

I agree. Definitely, less drastic than a new site if that's an option—which opens up to explore moving issues between projects, deleting the original project to reuse the key, etc.

Hi @Ivan Lima ... Thanks for your response... Actually the tickets numbers is almost 30k plus... So customer wants it to reset it from the beginning... That means from number 1 ... This we want to achieve...   So as you said... This cannot be possible.. in the existing project

Correct. Unfortunately, not possible on Cloud. For reference, there is a feature request to reset the issue counter: 

You can vote if you'd be interested in that, and also add yourself as a watcher if you'd like to receive notifications via email on updates.
