Well, I just found the weirdest way to solve this issue. If I go to the projects section mentioned above there's no delete option for me, but if I go to the administration section->Issues Tab->Projects, there's a 'Go to general projects list', which takes me right back to the same place I was before, but this time there's a delete option.
Weird, buggy, but I got the delete option to show up.
There is no issue here, it's hard to tell what is wrong when you're not explaining what you are doing (or rather where you are looking) 1. log in as an administrator, 2. go to the list of projects (not the project list everyone sees on the project drop-down, but the admin -> projects list) 3. Click delete on the right Or 1. Log in as an administrator 2. Go to the project to delete 3. Click administration 4. Select delete from the "actions" on the right
There's two layers of Jira administrators - I think of them as "root" and "day to day admin". Root can do things like destroy the attachments and indices, mess up mail servers and so-on - system level stuff. I don't think OnDemand users get that level of access (which is sensible, because you can trash your entire install!).
Day-to-day admins are "Jira Administrators" as you've seen above. They should be able to delete projects, so make sure you're in there (although, to see that page, I suspect you have to be in the group in the first place!)
The delete button should be on the project's admin page - where you set all the schemes.
Hi David ,
May be you need to be a jira system administrator to do that , the jira administrator in on demand has some less permisions than the jira system administrator .. http://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA000/Managing+Global+Permissions#ManagingGlobalPermissions-sysadmin
Yes, even though I am account owner, I didn't have the right permisions by default and after I all Admin groups, the options still weren't available until much later (at random -- no logging back in or anything that would explain it).
No wonder everybody has problems. The system is set up by default for account owners not to have the right settings.
Interesting, I checked that page, but there's no such thing as "Jira System Administrators' for me:
JIRA AdministratorsAbility to perform most administration functions (excluding Import & Export, SMTP Configuration, etc.).
Note: People with this permission can always log in to JIRA.
JIRA UsersAbility to log in to JIRA. They are a 'user'. Any new users created will automatically join these groups, unless those groups have JIRA System Administrators or JIRA Administrators permissions.
Note: All users need this permission to log in to JIRA, even if they have other permissions.
