Delete Sprint/Kanban Board - Jira Cloud / 7.3 Edited

Since the update I can no longer find how to delete boards, as the ability to manage boards seems to have gone. Where can I find it now?

For me, I see the option to delete boards here:

  1. Select Boards from the top menu
  2. Click View All Boards
  3. Click on the "..." at the right of the board you want to delete
  4. I see Board Settings, Move, Copy, Delete

Perfect, there it is, ta!

@Jeetendra Swain, if you are on cloud and you own the board you wish to delete go to magnifying glass > board section and click View all boards. You can delete from that screen.

It's also moved again for me - now I go to my current sprint board, then click the drop-down 




Then at the bottom of the drop down I 'view all boards'




Then that gives me the option to manage, delete ect.

I had to use this one above, the magnifying glass icon didn't give me view all board link, just a recent boards, fliters, and projects links.  I do get a view all boards in the other Jira cloud instance I work in.  I am an administrator in both.  Very strange.

This is no longer correct for the current cloud version.  I do not see "view all boards" option in the this menu.

Hi Alan, this still works for me. Please see the screen shots that Kit Goode provided on Sep 07, 2018 a few comments up.

The added caveat is since then, the sidebar is hidden by default on sprint board and you have to click the burger menu to open it



After that, apart from some very slight visual changes, it's basically the same as in Sep '07 comment

Eldon Wong:

Yesterday, I had this problem. I figured out how to solve it but couldn't

Then I searched on Google and met your instructions. I solved the problem.

So, thank you very much Eldon Wong! :)

If you are on cloud with new UI:

  • magnifying glass (search)
  • recent boards > View all boards
  • find board and click eclipses on the right

There it is, thanks!

There is no more "View all boards" in the Search bar in 2019... so where to do it now?

Edit: I was wrong, it is not in the Search bar, but in the "Search Boards" - thnx!

It's unclear from the UI, but you have to scroll down on that menu popup to see the "View all boards" link.

That works for me too.

Verify your Jira version first, these instructions are for Jira cloud version

  1. Click onMagnifying Glass on the left side menu 


2. It will bring a Search Screen

And at the bottom of same screen, you can Click on Boards to filter your search for Boards only

3. Type your board name you want to delete, once you see the board, on the right hand side of the board, you see three dots, when you click three dots, you will see the following options (depends upon your access on the board) and if you have access, you can delete the board from there. If you have an active sprint on this board, it will bring a waring screen to say, you have active sprint and if you still want to delete it, if its a duplicate board, you can delete it if not, you may want to wait until you complete the sprint.

This is so amazingly intuitive that I have to congratulate the Atlassian's design team! WOW. Thank you

@Lukáš DoležalThat was sarcasm, right? Nothing about Jira is intuitive.

Like Lukáš Doležal likes this

@Jason Cowley Correct. Both of your statements :D

Thank you @jasdeep I have literally spent an hour looking at all the old solutions. What a terrible UI!

Why can't it be

1) Edit the board (board settings).

2) Find delete option in drop down menu
