Before we get started, it’s important to note that only users with the necessary permissions can delete subtasks in JIRA. Generally, these permissions are given to project administrators or people in similar roles. If you don’t have the correct permissions, you won’t be able to delete subtasks.

Steps to Remove a Subtask in JIRA

Step 1: Navigate to the Issue

The first thing you will need to do is navigate to the issue that contains the subtask you want to delete. You can do this by entering the issue key into the search field at the top of the JIRA interface.

Step 2: Access the Subtask

Once you are on the issue’s page, scroll down to the Sub-Tasks section. Here, you will find a list of all the subtasks associated with the issue. Find the subtask you wish to delete and click on its key to open it.

Step 3: Delete the Subtask

With the subtask open, look for the More button at the top of the page. Click on it to open a dropdown menu and select Delete.

Step 4: Confirm Deletion

After clicking on Delete, a dialogue box will appear asking you to confirm that you want to delete the subtask. Keep in mind that deleting a subtask is permanent and cannot be undone. If you are sure you want to delete the subtask, click on Delete to confirm.


With these steps, you can effectively remove any subtask from your JIRA project. Remember, deletion is a serious action so always make sure that the subtask is no longer needed before deleting it. Happy project management!
