Phill, would this work for you?

  • top menu "Boards > View all boards"
  • find your board
  • click on a triple dot far right button on the row of your board
  • Delete


This option does not show. I'm an admin, have created the project and the board. Thanks.

Does not show for me either.

The new interface seems to have removed it and I am not finding any other way to get to the list of boards.

No "Delete" menu item either :-(

No delete either here

Click search, go to Recent Boards, View All Boards (  In the list, select the three dots at the far right and delete.  

Took a lot of searching to find out how to do this.  Not sure why it's not available from board settings.

Thank you. 

Thank you @krisloertscher , I can't believe that was so hard to find. 

In 2020 it's still not available. Thanks @krisloertscher

Thanks a lot @krisloertscher 


It took me hours to find this link : I will definitely save it somewhere as a reminder.

I also do not have the "Boards" menu option on my top bar. However, on the latest Jira Cloud version, going to https://<your org URL>/jira/boards brings up the boards list. you can then use the "..." menu and select "delete board"

Project ---  Board List --- > view all Boards --- > Delete !

This worked for me as well. Thank you for including the screenshot and steps to get to the expected result. 

This does not work, no View all boards.  Any other ideas?

Agreed, I can create boards but there is no way to edit/delete them...

I found that you can delete a kanbanflow board by doing the following:

  • Click on Boards in top left 
  • Select Board you want to delete
  • In top right corner click Menu, then settings
  • It will give you the option to Archive, downgrade or delete a board.

Hi Daniela

From the Agile menu option select Manage Dashboards and there you can delete, configure and copy any dashboards that you have administrative permissions for. Look for the ... at the end of the row for the available actions.

Hope this helps.


Phil, how would you delete a board (not a dashboard)? I have a Kanban-Backlog board that I no longer need. I have moved the cards elsewhere.

I cannot open the link above.

However, in my Software project, there is no trace of Agile menu, or Manage Dashboard. When looking at a kanban board, I have the ... menu on the right and the only menu item with "board" in it, is "Board Settings".


In my Business project, when looking at a kanban board, I don't even have the ... menu.

Maybe is a subscription related issue? or a project type issue?

I have experienced the same issue - the menu is only visible in 'Software Projects'  Also, if you choose a 'Business Project', you will also lose the 'Pages' link on the left of the JIRA project, which allows you to create a Confluence space, and then link Confluence pages to your JIRA project easily.  

Left menu - Search - View all boards - type the name of the board that you want to delete, and to the right you'll see "..." menu with "edit settings/ copy/ move/ delete" board (admin user).

Thanks @Diana Capraru that worked for me

Thank you! They really like to push the boundaries of UX, a lens icon that contains a list menu, it might help to have the Delete a little closer to the board is meant to delete. 

@Diana CapraruThat did it!  Thanks!!

The following steps worked for me:

  • Navigate to the board.
  • Click on the "Board" drop-down on the top right, then "Configure"
  • Click on the "Board" drop-down  again and hit "Delete"

On newer versions:
