Why can't members delete issue in Next gen projects?

I don't understand why a member can't delete an issue in the Next-gen project. I don't want to give them Administrator permission, where they can change the project's settings, however, I'd like them to be able to delete tasks/issues that are no longer needed.

Thanks.

Hi @Kenny Nguyen ,

Delete operation is irreversible. To reduce the risk of Issue being deleted by mistake, the delete permission is only allowed to be operated by the administrator.

The following posts have some suggestions about delete issues.

Thanks for the info. Although I still think a member should be able to delete the issue, especially when the member is the creator.
