How can I reset my OnDemand JIRA instance so I can start from scratch?

Changes have been made to a large number of issue types, fields etc. during a proof-of-concept and I'm not happy with them... I'd like to start again. Is there an easy way to just wipe everything and get back to a factory-fresh default setup?

No problem - just open a support request (as we have to do it for you on OnDemand). Two things for the request: (1) please confirm in the ticket that you know you are losing ALL data in the instance and (2) if you want it done as soon as possible or have a maintenance window. We will fully wipe it out and you will have a new stock instance.

Perfect - thanks Nik. I'll do that.
