Hello @AnandW

On the view screen of the issue, you have the more button and when you click on more button you should see the delete option. You can only delete the task if you have delete permissions.

Please see here the "delete issue permissions"

And if you want to give yourself delete permissions then you would need to talk to project admin/ jira admin about it.

Hi there @Tarun Sapra 


I can't see this anywhere. I am the owner of the organisation so should have all permissions.

Sorry - I double-checked and had to physically add myself as an admin to this project. 

I feel that this should have been given to me by some global permission setting but never mind. 

Sorry to distract you!
