Delete Custom Statuses

To remove a custom status, click the trashcan to the right of its row.

Delete a custom status

The removed status will be replaced with ‘None’ in test run columns.

You cannot delete default statuses.

Reorder Statuses

The order of the statuses on this page is used to calculate the aggregate status for items that have sub-items (if the “show numbers” option on the column settings screen is unchecked). The status of the parent item is defined by the highest-order status among its children.

To change this order, hover over a status until the drag bar appears, and then drag the status to its new location.

Reorder columns

This does not affect the order the statuses appear in the dropdown menu when selecting an issue's status.
