Possible to 'bulk delete' work items ?


Christophe Lucas (86224948) | asked Feb 01 '12, 7:13 a.m.
It is possible to delete individual work items via the work item Header's menu.
But if you select a bulk of work items in a query result and right-click, there is no option to delete all selected work items.

Is there a way to delete multiple work items in 1 time ?

Bulk work item deletion is supported in the current 4.0 milestone
release (M7). You can multi-select in the Web UI in a work item query,
and select the "delete work items" operation (you need to have the
appropriate permissions, of course).

I can delete items as i have admin rights but users even with the permissions set under Team Configuration > permissions > Work Items > Delete work Items cannot see that option to delete in the WI either on the Web UI or the eclipse client. This is on 3.0.1

Is this a bug ?

We are using Version 5.0.1. In the Web UI in a work item query I have no possibility to select "delete work item Operation".  There is only shown the "Add attribute Change" Operation.

Permissions I have - Project Administrator.

Thanks sam, you're right. JazzProjectAdmin permission is actual not enough to do bulk deletions of work items.
