      Description

      NOTE: This suggestion is for JIRA Server. Using JIRA Cloud? See the corresponding suggestion.

      So I've got a long list of components and issue types, e.g:

      • New feature
      • Improvement
      • Task
      • New Employee Setup
      • Specification
      • Customer Initiative
      • Blah
      • Blum
      • Boo

      In https://jira.bepress.com/secure/project/DeleteComponent!default.jspa?cid=XXXX ,
      If these issue types or components are in use, Jira makes me reassign them before deleting them.

      Instead I'd like to deprecate them, so they can't be assigned to new tickets, but history is not changed.

      My goal is to reduce clutter, when issue types are no longer relevant for new tickets.

      The same comment applies to several areas in the administrative GUI. I want to "ghost out" old stuff, without changing history.
