If the aim of "archiving" is to save space, you will need to physically delete the projects, after copying them to another server so you can retain lookup access to them.

Hi @Gopi_K ,

the Data Center Version allows you to Archive projects. 

But this projects still take the same space, they are just removed from index to increase performance. 

So exporting the projects and deleting them might be the best option to reduce size.

Hi @Gopi_K - Jira server does not have a native archive function to my knowledge.  What I've done in my past is create an "Archive" permission scheme where only Jira Admins have Browse Project permission.  Once that permission scheme has been applied, nobody will have access to it other than Jira admins, which simulates an archived behavior.

Currently we are doing this, but we need to reduce the data size from the production server

Yeah not much you can do about space. After a project was inactive for x amount of time, I would export the project and delete it.
