Archiving a project

Note: Only Project Owners and Admin users have the permission to archive a project

It's possible to mark a project as archived via the Project Settings. An archived project will be hidden by default in the project listings.

An archived project can be fully restored and will therefore retain it's repository and all associated resources whilst in an archived state.
