Hi Nel,

In order to delete an Epic, you can simply access the Issue screen itself and go to More > Delete.

Please note this will remove on the Epic itself and none of the issues associated to it.

Hope this helps.

no delete in the 3 dot menu. Screen Shot 2017-02-13 at 10.08.48 AM.png

There is no 'Delete' option under the '...' menu ..

Hi everyone, 

Another path would be:

On the Epic frame, click on the drop-down arrow next to the name of your epic, select "view epic details". On the rightmost of the screen, there is a button with three dots "...", click on it and select 'Delete'. 

Please let me know if that works for you too.

Thanks.

To Delete a JIRA issue, one should have Issue Delete permission. If you are project administrator, refer permission scheme associated to your project. If not contact your Jira-Administrator.

 

 

I have similar issues, and cannot delete Issues or Epics when I am in a specific schema.
I believe other projects have allowed me to use the Delete option on the issues.  I believe this is by design. I am an administrator and can see the Delete Issues permissions. 

I have read over all the comments and previous instructions and have been able to delete Issues before, but again, some projects I must hit 'Done' on an issue to delete it, which is not something we'd like to have, due to it still appearing in the history of the project.

Forget about boards and whatever you mean by "schema".  Pick an Epic that you want to delete and go look at it.  If you do not get the delete option in the tools menu, then go look at the project administration settings.  Look at the permission scheme and make sure you have "delete issue".

If you do have delete issue rights, then go look at the workflow.  The only other thing past the permission scheme that blocks delete is a workflow property on the current status of the issue - check for that.
