How do I delete a team?

How Do I delete the random extra team?


When I am using jira cloud it shows 2 teams even though I only plan to work with one. How do I delete the team-1618604880323 from the available teams shown in the jira drop down?

@Casey Woelfle - hi Casey!

Go to Jira, click "People" in the header, then choose "Search people and teams".

Find the team you want to remove, click into the team, then click "..." and choose "Delete team"

Hope this helps.

p.s. Of course, if it's a real team that someone is using, check with them before removing it. 😂

I went through the instructions and was unable to find the team in that area of the application? Maybe I am misunderstanding something and this is not a team? I attached a photo in the original post to show what I am looking to delete.

@Casey Woelfle - can you send a slightly larger screenshot?

If that's the dropdown in the upper-left, that looks like a separate Jira project.

Go to Projects > View all projects then search for "team". See a project with that name? If so, you can go into that project's settings and delete the project.

@Dave Liao Here is a larger screen shot to work with, it is under the drop down on the left but its also under the jira software it has a drop down and 2 different options 1 of which is team?

@Casey Woelfle - ah, thanks!

When you select team-1618604880323, what opens? Do you end up in a different Jira Cloud instance (a different URL ending in

If so, and you're the admin of the instance, you can delete it via

Apparently it is an organization like you are saying, yes.

I went to the admin panel, but where is the delete option? 

Even in the admin panel it shows the 2 organizations, the 1 I want to keep and the team one that I want to delete.


But I cant seem to find an option to delete?

@Casey Woelfle - you can move that Org's existing Products (like Jira Core) to another org that you manage. Upon a move of any existing Products, that "team" Org will disappear.

@Dave Liao Yea, so I went to the admin, deleted the jira service for that organization and such, but it still shows for some strange reason. Screen Shot 2021-04-17 at 13.13.41.png

Are there other Products in the Org? If so, it takes time to have it totally disappear.

@Dave Liao Nope, the only product that the team organization had was jira. It takes time to clear up? So wait like 24 hours or so and if its still there I can go from there?

Dave Liao Community Leader Apr 17, 2021

@Casey Woelfle - actually, go to the "team" Org's settings. Click "Settings" then "Transfer products".

Hopefully that's an option - that will remove the unneeded Org.

@Dave Liao  This worked. Thank you so much for your help. Pesky organizations haha.
