I know how to delete shared but how do you delete a private one?

Only an owner can delete a private filter. You can do it from the database too but you will have to raise a support ticket with Atlassian for the cloud instance.

I am the owner of the private ones but I do not know how to delete them as I don't see a clear 'delete' option when viewing all filters.

If you are the owner, click on the "Issues" drop down and select "View all filters". You can then click on the "..." on the right side to reveal all the operations available on the filter, including 'Delete'.

That "..." isn't available in the 'view all filters' screen. What i found was:

Deleting a filter

You can delete custom filters, but you cannot delete default system filters.

  1. Click the My tab on the 'Filters' page.
  2. Locate the filter you wish to delete, click more () > Delete

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

"at the bottom of the list" in many cases means under visible area. Total UX misunderstanding.
