Hi @EndeJoli,

Please, find below the requested:

# Marks project for deletion. Project will be deleted by a batch job.
# replace {username} to authenticate and perform deletion
# replace http://localhost:8085 with URL to access Bamboo
# replace {projectKey}, e.g PROJ

curl -k -u {username} \
-X DELETE http://localhost:8085/rest/api/latest/project/{projectKey}

# However, to delete the project you MUST delete the plans first,
# otherwise Bamboo will throw an error:

{"message":"Project can''t be deleted, as it still contains plans.","status-code":400}
# Marks plan for deletion. Plan will be deleted by batch job.
# replace {username}
# replace {planKey}, e.g PROJ-PLAN
# replace http://localhost:8085 with URL to access Bamboo

curl -k -u {username} \
     -H 'X-Atlassian-Token: no-check' \
     -H 'Accept: application/json' \
     -H 'Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded' \
     -d 'buildKey={planKey}' \
     -X POST 'http://localhost:8085/ajax/deleteChain.action'

Kind regards,



When you say: 

Marks plan for deletion. Plan will be deleted by batch job.


What do you mean? I am in need to delete some projects as well which contain plans, but when I run the curl command with the ajax/deleteChain.action, it doesn't do anything, do you have more info on how to delete the plans programmatically? 


What i mean is, this batch job, is that something I need to configure to run? or how does it work?
