      Hi everyone,

      I'm happy to announce that in Bitbucket Data Center 8.0 we have released repository archiving. Admins can archive unused repositories to declutter Bitbucket. Archived repositories go into read-only mode. It means that users cannot push new commits, create new branches, pull requests, or comment. By default archived repositories are excluded from code search results, so that your users will be able to find relevant results faster. Learn more about archiving repositories

      We have a situation where we have 100's of short term projects per year, that last a week or two (we currently use SVN for them). The code is rarely reused or accessed again. We know we can zip up and archive the git repositories, but not the project data in Stash. We don't want to end up with a stash display of hundreds of inactive projects.

      This would also apply to projects that are EOL, but may need to be retrievable to protect our IP.

      I know we could hide the projects, by making them read-only to one user, but they will still be there, in the databases.

      Thank you.
