Dear community, please advise - How can I assign a user (admin) right to delete issues?

I am looking to set up a team of 3 people who will have full rights as me - the organiser. And currently they can not delete the issues from the list..

We need to be clear here - do you mean "delete issue" or "remove issue from the list"?

If it is deleting an issue, then you should look at the project permission scheme - it has a line in it for "delete issue" and anyone matching that rule will be able to destroy all the issues in that project

I recommend that you never allow anyone delete issue rights other than system administrators because these forums are filled with people asking "how do I get an issue back after delete" being met with "you need to spend days recovering from a backup".  Issue delete is a terrible idea because it really is a delete.  Create a "wastebin" project instead and let them move issues into it, or add a "cancelled/deleted" type status or resolution to say "issue needs no more attention"

If you mean "remove issue from list", then you'll need to explain what the list is?

Thank you Nic, I meant exactly what you are writing about - deleting issues right for the key admins. I'll look for the project permission scheme, thank you! I'm new here and your response is very helpful!
