How do i delete a project?

Log in as an admin, and either

  1. go to the project, find the admin section and select "delete project" from the options at the top right.
  2. go to the admin's list of all projects (not the plain user project list) and select "delete" from the options to the right of the project

Bear in mind that deleting a project kills it completely.  If you have any doubts that you may need any of the data in it again, take a backup first, because that's the only way of recovering it.

I am not able to find admin tab and then delete tab

At the very top-right is your avatar icon. Next to that is a cog (gear) icon. Click the cog.

The dropdown says JIRA ADMINISTRATION.

Choose Projects in that list.

The Actions column in the Project row will have a delete link.

@Jolene Hey, at the top right gear Icon only gives me some option to hide something.

 

My avatar is on bottom left. There is an Administration section, but it has no entry related to projects or deleting them. There is no JIRA ADMINISTRATION option, and yes, I am every kind of Administor (and I'm also the owner of the account)

Hello everyone,

Project delete option you can find by 2 ways

1) Go to setting => Projects => Delete

See the screenshot below

2)Go to project => Delete project

Me too I cannot find the admin TAB, this is so not helpful.

Nevertheless, it is a correct answer.  Since it was written, Cloud has had the UI changed to something that makes it a lot harder to find stuff, including the admin sections.

Look for the settings cog on the left to start with, while you're in a project view.

Thank you Nic, I will keep trying, if I find it I will post it.

@Nic Brough [Adaptavist], my avatar is on bottom left. There is an Administration section, but it has no entry related to projects or deleting them.

 

At the top right in a project, there are the dots in a grey box, but clicking on them only gives me an option to "Hide cover image", whatever that means.

 

and yes, I am every kind of Administor (and I'm also the owner of the account)

In the admin section, go to the list of projects, that will have the delete option

Go to your DASHBOARDS ---> Click on SETTINGS ---> click on PROJECTS --->click on PROJECTS again ---> the Vwalaaa you can see the DELETE option there to click on.

very odd, the option was missing, and suddenly it became available. The only explanation is that even though I am account owner, I didnt have the right privileges by default and after I added them, they still didn't take effect until much later.

No wonder everybody has problems. The system is set up by default for account owners not to have the right settings. 

How did you set up the right settings?

After selecting delete,  it will ask for, "you are about to delete"
