Is it possible to undo moving an issue from one project to another?

Hayley Verner May 18, 2017

I created and issue in one project (ex. ASB-1) and moved it to another project (ex. S4BC-3). Due to development activities, I need that issue to have the old JIRA Issue key (ASB-1). Is there a way to move the issue back to the old project and retain the old issue key?

Yes - but only under the most extreme circumstances.

You "simply" restore an old backup before the original move and then expend an extremely large amount of time and effort re-transacting all the subsequent operations (except the move).
