How do you delete an issue created in error?

Give yourself delete permission in the project and click "delete"

I'd very strongly recommend only doing that temporarily, because delete really is delete - the issue is totally gone.

Just click More button and select "Delete" from the menu. If you do not see "Delete" in this menu it means you don't have delete permission.

I'm with Nic on this. The forum is full of people looking to recover deleted issues. I suggest having a resolution of Deleted. When you delete an issue the number isn't reused and if you delete enough issues you'll eventually have someone ask what happened to number nnn, they can't find it. then they will want to know why it was deleted.
