      Atlassian Update - 16 July 2020 

      Hi everyone,

      Today we’re excited to announce that project archiving is generally available as part of Jira Software Premium. You can read about it in detail at https://support.atlassian.com/jira-cloud-administration/docs/archive-a-project/

      With project archiving, you don’t have to delete old or inactive projects – simply archive them and all of their underlying issues. By archiving older projects, you reduce clutter in Jira and always have a record of older work in case you need it. You also don’t have to worry about team members accessing out-of-date work or adding Jira issues to the wrong place.

      To try out project archiving start a free Jira Software Premium trial today (go to billing → manage subscriptions → change plans). Or you can learn more about Jira Software Premium here.

      Additionally, if you’re worried about accidentally deleting projects, we also recently rolled out a new trash feature (available in your Jira site right now) where you can recover any project you’ve deleted for up to 60 days after it’s been deleted.

      I would like to be able to archive projects in Jira Cloud, which is currently not available.

      See How to hide (or archive) a project for a workaround.
