csv import with wrong creation year


Transfering issues from an old system to Jira brought one over accidently with a creation date of Sept 6, 2013 instead of Sept 6, 2012. Is there a way to change the date?

The easiest is to update the database directly.

1) Stop Jira

2) Verify Jira is not running

3) Verify that the database field has your incorrect value is the table mentioned below. If not, then stop there and ask for help again else use SQL to update the create date field.


4) Restart Jira

I cannot stress more that you need to stop Jira before modifying the database directly.
