Excluding Attribute Type from Issue Type
It will no longer appear for new issues of that issue type. Any existing issues with a value set for the attribute will maintain it, although it will appear grayed-out in the issue editor. It can be deleted from the issue by using the Remove button.
Deleting Attribute Types
This option can be used if there is an attribute type that will not be used at all and you want to remove it from a project. It is a quick way to get rid of a type that, for example, you just recently created and have decided not to use. If you want to delete a type that has been in use, the quickest option is just to exclude it from use as described above. Deleting it from the project is possible, but there are some prerequisites as described below.
If the attribute type has been in use, you must first:
- Exclude it from all issue types. See instructions above.
- Navigate to the Attribute Types page.
- Find and select the attribute to delete in the Attribute Types list.
- Right-click and select Delete Attribute Type. If previously in use, it will be removed from the issue editor.
