Archiving project areas and team areas

You can archive project areas and team areas from within the web client. Archiving a project area removes it from the list of active project areas. Archiving a team area removes it from the Team Area Hierarchy section on the project area Overview page.

Before you begin

You must be a member of either the JazzProjectAdmins group or the JazzAdmins group.

About this task

It is common to archive a project area or team area when users no longer perform work in it. For example, your development team might have completed its work in one project area and is now using a new project area to track its current work. Archiving a project area or team area hides it in the user interface. However, many parts of the user interface include a Show Archived option, which enables you to see archived project areas or team areas and their artifacts.

Procedure

  1. Navigate to the Active Project Areas page in the administrative web interface. See Logging in for project administrators and team leads (web).
  2. In the list of active project areas, hover over a row and click Archive icon, the Archive icon. To archive a team area, click the project area to open it. In the Team Area Hierarchy section of the Overview page, hover over a team area and click Archive icon.
  3. Click OK.
  4. Optional: To manage archived project areas, in the left pane, click Archived Project Areas. On the Archived Project Areas page, select an archived project area from the list.

Results

After you archive a project area, it is no longer listed on the Active Project Areas page. Archived team areas are no longer shown in the Team Area Hierarchy section on the Overview tab of the project area editor. Archived project areas are not included in the list of project areas shown when you click the drop-down arrow next to the Home icon, Home icon. However, you can access an archived project area by selecting All Projects from the drop-down menu and then selecting Show Archived.

What to do next

You can restore a project area or team area to an active state.
