Creating and deleting teams requires the Tempo Team Administrator permission.

A team is a group of Jira users who work on projects together in some way. A team might consist of, for example, the people in one department of your company, or it might be a scrum team if you work in an agile software development environment. 

Adding more than 25 users to a team can negatively affect performance.

Deleting Teams

When you delete a team, all links associated with the team will also be removed, including project, issue, and board links. This may impact issue filters within your organization.

To delete a team:

  1. Go to the Teams page.
  2. Click Delete for the team you want to delete. A confirmation window is displayed showing if any projects or issues are linked to the team. To see which projects and issues are linked to the team, click the number within the brackets. Note you can only view projects and issues where you have the permission to do so. 
  3. Click Delete to confirm.
