I strongly advise against deleting issues. It will come back to bite you. The forum is full of people asking for a way to restore an issue. And since JIRA will not reuse the number someone will someday ask, what happened to issue BUG-1234 and someone will have to figure it out. I suggest having a resolution of Opened in Error, OBE, or Deleted and train people to ignore them.

Check the permission if your role/ID has the ability to "Delete" issues.

Hi there,

If you visit an issue, you can check the "Delete" button inside the "More" menu.
