is there anyway to programmatically delete projects in jira?

We are doing a migrating/cleanup on a jira instance before moving it to the cloud. I would like to delete a bunch of projects on the way. the rest api does not seem to have any hooks for doing this. Is there anyway to do this other than hitting the big red button on the user interface?

You are correct: The REST impl does not allow you delete projects. You could use xmlrpc or you can use the CLI plugin (which is now paid) but does exactly what you want.
