Unable to delete test case in Jira

I have recently installed Zephry for Jira and to test the import function I have created several test cases (which I do not actually need). I have tried navigating to the issue to delete the test case but unable to see a delete option? any ideas?

Sure, note that you will still need to follow the steps above, Zephyr will not have delete option within the test case even though you are a system admin.

You should be able to do that by:

  1. Searching the test case(s) - Issues > Search for Issues
  2. Bulk change > Select test case > delete
  3. Next and done

Thank you for the reply. - It appears I do not have the access to delete the issue, I will go forth and demand access! :)

You can delete the Test Case if you have added it to a Structure.


In the Structure view locate the Test Case and on the 'Action's' drop down on the right hand side the bottom Option is to Delete.


I am unable to delete a test case in JIRA. Could you please let me know which permission is required to delete to test case

Anybody had any success for this? I too want to delete some test cases that were created accidentally. What permissions do I need to have to be able to delete test cases

In my case it was all about the permissions. 

Zephyr uses Jira's permission 'Delete Issues' to control whether user can delete test cases. So make sure that you have that permission and everything is pretty easy then.
