Can i remove an unmapped status with issues - jira

Hi I have a custom work flow in jira , I deleted a status with isseus , so now it has gone to unmapped status "Statuses containing issues" , now when i opened the workflow of the project the deleted Status still there , i think because it has issues , but i do not wat that issues .

I can not delete the status from unmapped status because it has isseus .

I tried to change the workflow , but it asks me to assign deleted statues to a new status .

the thing is i have over 200 bugs which i do not need to track . so adding a existing status and then delete issues 1 by 1 is not possible for me .

what is the easiest way to do this , please help , thanks in advance :)

Hi Bjorn,

Do you still want to keep those issues, if not, then you'd probably be able to do a bulk delete of the issues in the issue navigator. Alternatively just to remove them from the fault status you should be able to fix them by running the integrity checked on your workflow status.

I do not wat to keep them , so how can i bulk delete issues , is there an easy way ?

Define a filter, then use "bulk edit" on it. Delete is an option.

You need the global permission for bulk edit, and the project permissions for issue delete as well.
