Cannot delete a completed sprint in JIRA

I have a sprint without issues associated, and I accidentally completed the sprint. How can I delete that sprint? 


I already grated "Manage Sprints" to my group but still cannot find the delete sprint. 

I also followed this documentation but still don't have the delete sprint.

Hi Allen,

If you have "Manage Sprints" permission and the sprint is definitely completed, you should be able to see Delete button on the Sprint Report page (doesn't matter if the sprint has issues associated):
Can you please upload the screenshot of the Sprint Report screen?

Hi @Marko Filipan thanks for your response. I have an access to manage sprint but when I click dropdown of sprint I can only see "Re-open sprint". I also cannot re-open sprint, it prompts me that there's no issues associated to this sprint.

Even I have the same problem. Looks like I am using 6.4.11 version and there is no option to delete a completed sprint in this version. 

Do we have plugin or something to do this?

Thanks, B
