Project archiving for Jira Software Data Center

Reduce clutter in Jira and prioritize performance.

Project archiving improves performance at scale

As the scope of Jira grows in your organization, having a plan for how to remove outdated information becomes more and more important. That’s why we’re excited to share that our Data Center offering now includes project archiving.

In Jira Software, especially in a growing organization, it’s important to consider what will happen when the tickets and projects created in Jira have passed their prime. If you don’t, you’ll run the risk of Jira becoming more difficult to use over time. This is why we recommend creating an archiving strategy for Jira Software early and revisiting it frequently.

With project archiving, you can quickly and safely remove projects from Jira knowing you can bring the information back later if needed. We’ve also made some tweaks to the admin project list to help with the process of archiving, adding the ability to search for projects by name and paginating your list of projects, which will help you navigate to that project you’re trying to archive more easily.
