That's a bit of a minefield at the moment. There is no formal or proper way to do it.
You do have a couple of choice to make to begin with
1) You could wait until Atlassian come up with an archiving solution - I know they're working on it, and have been for a while, but I've no idea whether it will be ready
2) You need to analyse your archiving requirements to get a feel for what you're going to need.
A problem here is that "archive" is a bit vague, and your approach depends on the details of the problem you're trying to solve. My answer 1 might be utterly useless to you. A good start is that you've said "disk space", but even that needs questioning - database disk space? Attachments? The working directories other than attachments? "Archive to save disk space" has several different possible answers based on which areas of disk you are running low on!
Apparently, the JIRA application files are consuming the hard disk space because the database is at a different server.
It will be good; if we can archieve issues by date rather then a project because the projects are still being used by users.
The offline archieving is archieving unused project right?
I'm not sure I understand what you mean by "Jira application files". To be clear, there are several piles of files you need to consider
You need to identify which one, or several, of these is causing the issue with disk space. However,
So, you need to consider the index, the logs and the attachments. By default, they are all in the "jira home directory", unless you've moved them, so you can simply look at the sizes of those three directories to find out what the problem is...
Finally, not quite. Offline archiving a copy of all the data at the time you run the export, and you can retrieve from it.
It's officially Tuesday, which means it's officially time for another tip to help you better navigate this space we call the Atlassian Community. 😄 I got a great question from community member, Sa...
