I am a site administrator and unable to delete an Epic. I do not see an More Actions menu as suggested in another post.

Could you be specific on it's location. I am looking at the project board and select the epic I would like to delete in the left column. There are no stories associated with this epic. How do I delete it? Thanks,

Deleting an Epic is the same as deleting other issues, so the 'Delete Button' will be displayed under the 'More' menu:

Please note though that this option will only appear if you do have the 'Delete Issues' permission on the project.

Let me know if this helps.

Thanks, that helped.

I was looking at the Rapid Board and didn't realize I needed to (or how to) open the issue / Epic from the left column (answer was to click the link underneath the Epic's name).
