We have deleted all the issues created in Jira. And now we would like to start afresh.
But then when i try to create an issue, the Issue Key takes the next sequence number instead of 1.
We want the issues to start with 1 now again after cleanup.
Is there a way to re-set the sequence to 1.?
Please let me know, its pretty urgent.
Thanks for the response.
But it is very tedious process to delete all projects and re-create them . And more over assigning the users to each project takes more time.
May i know if there is any other workaround may be setting some configuration file.
No. There's no other way in the UI.
You can do it directly in the database. This particular SQL is relatively simple and safe compared with other things people make a mess of with SQL - you set the pcounter on each project you need to reset in the "projects" table.
But, with SQL, there is no easy option - you have to stop Jira, get a backup of the database, prove it's a good backup, run the SQL, then restart Jira and re-index. (If you are only changing the counters in the project table, you do not need to re-index, unless you've got plugins that may be storing extra data about your projects)
I know I am 6 years late with my answer... but I am going to give it anyway. When I needed to reset my projects issue key, I cloned the project and gave the clone a different name/key. Checked all the notification scheme, screen scheme, workflow conditions/post actions etc copied over, then deleted the original and gave the clone the original project name/key. Worked fine. Took 5 mins. Merry Christmas. J
