How to delete issues permanently

There are two ways to delete issue in YouTrack:

- click "Delete issue" button from full screen issue view

- use "delete" command in Command Dialog

However, if you delete issues with attachments, you may observe known problem Fix will be delivered within one of next YouTrack releases.

Please, use following workaround to delete issues permanently:

- create new project, say, "Removing issues"

- on Issues list, select all issues you would like to remove

- start typing a command: move (select "Removing issues" project from auto-completion) and click Apply.

- navigate to Administration> Projects> Removing issues> Delete project.

Target issues permanently along with entire project.


Delete issues action cannot be undo. Thus, issues can be restored only within entire YouTrack instance as per procedure procedure .
