Hi @Mohamed Saad Taha ,

Welcome to the community. 

Select Admin settings -->  Issues.

In the Workflows section, select Workflows.

Find the relevant workflow in Inactive Workflow section , then select Delete.

Please note:
You can't delete a workflow that's assigned to a workflow scheme. First remove the workflow from the scheme and then proceed to delete the workflow.

Below link has details on how to add/remove workflows from a workflow scheme.

You need to first disassociate the workflow with any project and workflow scheme. It should show under the Inactive workflows where you can the delete.
