With the establishment of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), you now may need to find old SpiraTeam projects that are not active any more so that you can delete them and reduce unnecessary storage of personal data.

select max(H.CHANGE_DATE) as LAST_CHANGE_DATE, P.NAME as PROJECT_NAME from SpiraTestEntities.R_HistoryChangeSets as H
inner join SpiraTestEntities.R_Projects as P on H.PROJECT_ID = P.PROJECT_ID
where P.IS_ACTIVE = True
