Issue Type delete permissions

What I need is not supported OOTB and I am looking for ideas how to implemented it.

What I need is that team members are able to delete sub-task but not standart issues. Example would be team members can delete dev or qa task as part of sprints, but not epics or stories.

Bit of a fiddle, but what you could do is...

  • create a new field
  • select list, with one option like "delete me"
  • do not put it on any screens
  • use a post-function to set it to "delete me", but ONLY on workflows that are used by sub-tasks
  • (As a one-off, put it on an edit screen and bulk edit existing sub-tasks to add it to them, remove the field from the screens when done)
  • In your field configurations, make sure the field only applies to sub-tasks
  • Put all your users who should be able to delete into a group called exactly the same as the option "delete me"
  • Finally, set up the permission scheme to allow delete on "group custom field value"
