Delete some issues using JIRA menus

Hi all,

Is there a way do delete any issues using JIRA menus with administrator profile, instead of going to issues browser and suppress them one by one ?

Thank you,

Administrator rights are not relevant here. Make sure your account has "delete" rights granted by the project permission scheme and "bulk edit" rights as granted by global permissions.

Then filter for the issues you want to delete and use "bulk edit" to mass delete them.

Bear n mind that deleted issues really are deleted, gone, dead, scrubbed, ended. If you delete something by mistake, you will need to recover it from a system backup.


Thank you very much Nic. Exactly what I need ;-)
