I deleted a project and saw it in Trash over several days with the expiry counting down to zero. I recovered it to cut and paste an entry into another project then deleted it again. Then the Trash option disappeares when I chose Projects from the Settings icon. The project came back with no issues but I couldn't delete it again. See screenshots below...
Now the trash is back but I can't permanently delete it. Now when I try, I get an email from Jira:
We could not delete this project.
It is probably a temporary problem. Go to trash and try again.
I do with no change in behavior
Hi @Ken Deering ,
Thank you for reaching out, and the behavior you are running into is a New Bug that was recently reported by multiple other users starting Monday, some more details can be seen in the following threads:
Our Dev team is getting ready to push out a fix, which should go out later today, contingent on testing.
Incase there are any delays in the roll out, for tracking I created following Bug report to keep an eye the progress of the fix, please add yourself as a watcher to get updates, and this fix will be rolling out really soon:
I am still having the issue right now (Jira Cloud, July 2021). It's a double issue actually:
1. I can send a project to Trash, but cannot delete it permanently: "We couldn't delete this project. It's probably a temporary problem. Go to trash and try again."
2. If I restore the project from Trash, I can see it on the "Projects" list, but I can't access it: when I click on the project, I get "This project isn't available. It may have been deleted or your permissions may have changed. View a list of all projects" (I am a global admin)
Logging out and clearing cache didn't help.
This is critical, it makes Jira Cloud unusable in our company.
Thank you in advance for a quick fix.
