delete automatically issues archived after a while


we need to delete automatically issues archived after 1 year to clean up database . 

the solution we find is:

*restore issues one by one then delete them.

this solution take a lot time.

we need clear the caches of the archived issues overall.

(notice: we don't want restore and delete ,again and again..)

thanks for your response.

I'd like to explore why you think you want to "clean up the database"?  

Archived issues do not have a significant impact on your use of the system.  They don't appear in searches or reporting unless someone is explicitly asking for archived issues.   You won't get any increase in performance by deleting them because they're not actively included in anything day-to-day.  The data behind them is tiny, if you're worrying about disk space on the database server (attachments are different if you're trying to regain space on the server's disk)

What are you actually trying to achieve by doing this?
