How do you delete/remove a template from an issue type?

Deleted user Jul 27, 2019

How do you delete a template from an issue type? I have a custom filed = templates that contain 3 templates, 2 that I would like to keep and one that I would like to delete because it is redundant, but I am having a tough time locating where to configure that field.


Any help would make me extremely happy.


Thank you,

Nic Berry

The answer depends entirely on how you have enabled templates in your Jira system - I would guess by using an app of some sort, in which case, I would simply disable it.

I really hate templates in Jira.  When someone thinks "ohh, we should use a template for issues", what they really mean is "our process has been over-engineered and people are asking us to fill in stuff that is utterly pointless because it's always going to be the same"

I have yet to find a template install in Jira that could not be improved by removing the templated fields.
