Top Jira apps to restore deleted issues [Cloud and Data Center]

If you are looking for a way to recover a deleted Jira ticket, you will find a lot of advice in the community. Most of them, though, recommend not deleting issues at all or restricting the permission to delete issues for users except for the admin. However, in many cases, users need a recycle bin to store deleted data and recover it. Here, we’ll explore the top Jira plugins to store/ restore deleted issues.

You may need to track and recover deleted tickets for different reasons:

  • You or your teammates have accidentally deleted some issue – no worries, sometimes it happens.
  • You must record all actions (including deleted issues) because of regulations or audit requirements.
  • You always want to be sure your issues won’t disappear forever and aren’t comfortable backing up your projects.

Whatever your reason is, with Jira's highly adjustable environment, you can always find some solution. Let’s see what third-party options we have on Atlassian Marketplace.
