Hmm, that's strange. You cannot delete default filters but you won't find them under your filter list either. If you are seeing the filter but not seeing the dots, it might be a bug. I can see it fine in my instance.
Maybe you can attach a screenshot to show what you are seeing!
What version are you using? For the cloud JIRA v1000.1154.0
- click on issues and you should see "manage Filters" at the bottom of the list
- click that and you will get a list of filters that you own
- click on the "..." next to the filter you wat to delete and you will get an option to delete
I tried going to bard - clicked on "Swtich boards" icon, chose my board, and backlog opened. And on the left there is icon issues and filters:
And I still cannot see delete button, plus I cannot even see my filters now.
And why can't you do the delete button just near the filter link? Why we need to know where it is hidden? Or at least three points menu near the filter link, so you could add more things like edit.
