An epic is a normal issue. You could open the issue and delete it (More Actions -> Delete).


Thanks for the quick reply Henning. Turns out I didn't have access rights -- do now and see the delete option you mention.

Thanks Henning - turns out I needed access rights as well.

where are these access rights set?

Project Settings --> Permissions --> Actions Menu (upper right) --> Edit Permissions

Then click the upper-right "Grant Permission" button.  Choose "show more", select "Single User" and find your username in the user text box above.

Hello @Amos VanHorn, thank you for steps, but I don't see what next.

Q can you help?

To delete issues you need the Delete Issues permission. Select it and add it to your group or project role.
