Issue Archiver for Jira


The Issue Archiver plugin allows Jira admins to select issues for archives/snapshots in HTML format together with their attachments.

Archives are snapshots which the issues are deleted after the archiving process. The process is irreversible and archived issues cannot be restored.

    • For offline reference when Jira cannot be accessed

    • For regulatory requirements
    • Reclaim the disk space (you can use a snapshot to generate the zip of all attachments of selected issues and then delete the attachments)
