Optimize issues in your site

This feature is currently rolling out to cloud customers. Your site may not reflect these changes, or you might not see it in your site just yet.

The Site optimizer tool helps administrators clean up their site, including archiving issues that are no longer relevant. Archiving these issues can improve the speed and responsiveness of your site.

The processes described in this section are only possible with the Jira Software Administrator permissions.

To view the custom fields clean-up tool, select System from your global settings, Site optimizer, then Issues from the sidebar menu.

This page shows you:

  • the total number of company-managed custom fields in your site

  • our recommended ideal number based on performance data

  • your usage compared to this recommended number

Based on these numbers, you can archive issues to improve site performance.
