Can we archive work item types?

Susan Hanson (1.6k2197194) | asked May 28 '13, 12:24 a.m.
We have a set of work item types that we had started to use but we determined that we didn't want to use them.  We have some work items created of those types already.

Is there a way to "archive" a work item type, similar to how in 4.0 you can Archive a release?  We don't want it to affect these already-created-and-resolved work items, but we don't want to allow creation (I know, we can just remove permissions) or appear in the drop-down when they go to create a new work item.

I don't find a way in the configuration to set that.  Is it available anywhere?

even with 402, i see this only option is to remove

see there is already an enhancement around this :
Add the ability to archive a work item type without deleting it (179512)
