Original request description:
We would like to have the ability to archive old issues. We currently have an installation of JIRA (3.0.3) that has grown to 50,000 + issues. Out of these, about 35k are closed issues. We would like to be able to remove these issues from the database so that our installation has a smaller amount of issues. As an example, all issues that are more than 90 days old would be removed from the database, but they would still be useful for a Knowledge Base.
To summarise, a feature that would remove or export issues (with comments) of certain age would be very useful.
