My team ended up configure an issue type for our projects because they projects in JIRA seem to be permanent...which goes against the very definition of a project. For an organization that may work on 100+ projects a year there is no way we can keep them all listed under projects.
Well, they're not "permanent", but they can be permanent, lasting many years, even as they evolve or fade. And a "project" in JIRA is not just for projects of varying length, they can be simple containers for on-going work that's never going away.
If you need to discard or end projects though, that's not a problem. If a project is ended, do a quick sanity check on it (are the issues all closed) and then you can make it read only, or readable only by admins or an archive user, or even totally invisible (admins would be able to see the project header, nothing more). Or delete it.
