How to delete a workflow scheme using Jira Command Line Interface

This article explains how to delete a workflow scheme from Jira using Bobswift's Jira Command Line Interface (CLI). 


Perform the following CLI action to remove a workflow scheme:

--action deleteWorkflowscheme --workflowScheme "classic"

In this command:

  • Classic is the workflow name.
  • Instead of workflowScheme parameter, workflow scheme id or name parameters can be also used.

While deleting a workflow scheme, make sure it is not assigned to any project. Only inactive workflows can be deleted  using Jira Command Line Interface.
