When was archive project introduced? project settings

when was archive project introduced in project settings?

According to this link from 2017: Archived projects are only visible in the admin area (#30745) · Issues · GitLab.org / GitLab FOSS · GitLab

so in short, a long long time. Why ask? Is it really that important how long it has existed for? More important is, that the option exists :slight_smile:

  • it is widely used on github
  • in my experience i seen only two repos on gitlab

All my repos on Gitlab.com has it, so I don’t understand what your problem is? Perhaps you can explain in more detail what your problem is?

Because my repos are private, and you wouldn’t have access to be able to set archive option anyway even if they were public - nor can you see archive option on public project. Only owners or possibly maintainers can see that.
