Deleting story or task in JIRA classic project



We accidentally created a story and few tasks in a JIRA project. We wanted to delete the story and tasks associated with that. We currently don't have a delete button to delete a story/task. Is there a way to grant permission to delete stories. Please let me know the workflow.JiraDeleteIssue.jpg

Looking forward to your response.

Hi @Pramod DC ,

Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

You can check your 'Delete issue permission' Project Settings-> permissions

You should have Jira Admin access to change the permissions.

I hope it will help you.

This Works :)

Hi @Pramod DC

welcome to the Atlassian Community!

Please make sure you have the appropriate permissions from Permission Scheme.
If this is new to you I will link the documentation on managing Permission Schemes for you:

Another very useful tool is the "Admin Helper" - directly from within Jira it shows if a specified user is missing permissions.

In general a rule of thumb within Jira is not to delete issues. Is is a destructive task and cannot be reverted.

Please test and let us know what you found out.


Thanks I understood what was wrong.
