I have Project Managers who run implementation projects in our JIRA application. As requirements change over during the early stages of a project, they wish to be able to delete tasks that are no longer relevant. Currently only users with admin rights have access to the Delete function. Can I give these users the ability to delete issues without giving them full admin rights to our entire JIRA platform?
Please follow the steps below:
Hope this works for you.
Thanks and regards,
You've got two good answers already, but I'd like to add a note of warning. Delete issue in JIRA really is delete.
No waste bins, undo, recall, rollback - if you delete an issue, it has passed on. It is no more. It has ceased to be. It has expired, it is pushing up the daisies. It's kicked the bucket, 'shuffled off its mortal coil, run down the curtain and joined the choir invisible. You can only get them back from your backups.
And hence, I always always always advise people to not allow issue delete to anyone other than a tiny handful of admins who can be trusted to delete after careful consideration (if that. In some places it's a criminal offence to use delete)
You must access the Permission Scheme used by the project and edit the permissions you want. If you've never changed anything related do permission schemes, then you should see this: https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Managing+Project+Permissions#ManagingProjectPermissions-PermissionSchemes
This forum is full of people begging for ways to restore an issue they accidentally deleted. As Nic said don't allow deletes. I use a resolution of Deleted that is automatically set in a transition only the project lead can execute and requires a reason from a select list (entered in error, OBE, Other) and explanation text.
