I think it's impossible. Just connect to your database and check jiraissue table. More details about JIRA DB schema: https://developer.atlassian.com/jiradev/jira-architecture/database-schema

That is correct - a deleted issue really is totally deleted. To restore one, you have to go back to a database *backup* and fetch it from there. I don't think that's available on Cloud (although you could raise a support request and ask them to do it, or at least give you a copy of the backup) Standard recommendation though - do not allow delete to any users except admins - consider having a "wastebin" project instead of allowing delete.
