Atlassian administration - how to delete organizations? Edited

We're Server customers who are putting a toe in the water to explore JSM and Confluence Cloud to see what they can do for us potentially.

I need help/direction in cleaning up our "Atlassian administration" page, which is currently showing 3 "Organizations". 


We should only have 1 "Organization", which is the first one shown above.

The attached image shows what we have and what I suspect we need to do:

  1. Delete the "jira-core" org (we do not use it)
  2. Delete the 2nd of the two "organizations".

Please advise on how we can do this.

When creating a Jira site, automatically an organization is created. This organization can't be deleted. 

There is a feature request suggesting the implementation of this ability:

There is a workaround that used to work that you can try.  You can delete these organizations by using the "Transfer all products to another organization you administer" function (in Settings -> Details). Of course, there was nothing to actually transfer, but the process worked all the same and the extra organizations were deleted. A side-effect was that all admins got emails that they were made an admin, for each organization that I thus deleted.

That worked!  But Atlassian needs to make it less mysterious.  I'll vote for the item.
