Very easy with ScriptRunner, just execute this script in the Script Console.

Don’t forgive to configure the date limit to archive (it depends of the release date)!

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.project.version.VersionManager

VersionManager versionManager = ComponentAccessor.getVersionManager()

List<VersionManager> versions=versionManager.getAllVersions() as List

//versionManager.archiveVersion(versionManager.getVersion(651326), true);
//return "To test just archiving one release";

def resultado = "";
for ( int i = 0; i < versions.size() ; i++)
def release_date = versions[i].getReleaseDate();
def archived = versions[i].isArchived();
if (!archived && release_date.toString() <= '2016-01-01') {
resultado+= i + " " +versions[i].getProject() + " " + versions[i].getId() + " " +versions[i].getName() + " " + release_date.toString() + "\n";
versionManager.archiveVersion(versions[i], true);
//return resultado; //To stop at first archived release (testing)
return resultado;

If you see useful, you can configure it in a scheduled Service!

Very useful in large Organizations!
