Hi Kanishka, yes it is possible, please read the following steps:

1. Search for the issues with Ready To Release status using JQL query:

project = "test_pro" AND status = "Ready To Release"

2. Tools > Bulk Change > Select All > Delete Issues > Confirm

For more information, please refer the documentation.

Always backup JIRA data before we try, in case we can roll back.

@Chin Kim Loong what would you do if you had a much larger number? I am looking at around 400,000 tickets right now. I was using the bob swift CLI, but it's moving slow. 

Right now I have the CLI moving one way while I use the bulk delete through the tickets starting at the other end of the list. Only problem is that our limit is set to 1,000 and I'm not allowed to change it.
