Unable to Bulk delete issues


I am no longer able to bulk delete issues, where this has always worked fine before.

I think this is to do with Global permissions, 

I recently deleted some permissions because they were set to "public" which alarmed me as potential security risk.

However I cannot find an option to add "bulk change issues" to an existing permissions group - When I search in the permissions helper it does not find anything.

Thank you

Hi @Andy,

You can find the bulk change permission in the Global Permissions menu and go to the bottom of the page to grant this permission to the relevant group:


Keep in mind that you also need the Delete issues permission in the related projects.

However, I'd like to point out that you should be very careful when deleting issues since you can't restore them easily.

Hope this helps,

- Manon
