Archive backlog items

Administrators can archive themes and features to remove old items from the product backlog. This can increase your Agile Manager performance, as well as decrease the length of your lists of themes and features.

When you archive a theme or feature, all child items are also archived, including any items not marked as Done. Archived child items can include features (when archiving a theme), user stories, defects, or group stories.

Backlog and release grids

Sprint progress bars

Group stories

Task boards

Graphs and buckets for previous and current releases. These maintain accurate images of a specific release or sprint, even after relevant information is archived.

Read-only display of archived themes, features, or backlog items.

Note: Users can view a read-only list of archived items, but cannot retrieve them from the archive. Administrators must retrieve an item before its details can be displayed or modified.

Administrators can retrieve items from the archive, including individual user stories and defects.

  • Retrieving a parent item (theme or feature) also retrieves all of its child features, user stories, or defects.

  • Retrieving a child item (feature, user story, or defect) also retrieves its parent feature and theme. Other child items of the same feature and theme remain archived.

Retrieved items are visible in grids, and are accessible to users as they were before being archived.

Synchronized archived items

If an item in the archive is synchronized with ALM, any changes made to the item in ALM continue to be synchronized with the archived user story or defect.
