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.
