Description

Versions should be deletable in the same way, as Categories.
If version has ticket assigned, RedMine should ask what to do with these tickets, in the same way as when deleting Category (delete assignment, reassign to version etc...).

PS: deleting versions in SW projects is not so much usefull, but it's very important when using versions for milestones.

Deleting versions is implemented. Redmine asks "Are you sure?" and then tries deleting. However deleting does not proceed if versions have issues assigned.

I think this issue could be closed.

Agreed. Just one regression. It would be great of there is some option for managers:
  • Delete version with issues

This should delete all issues assigned to this version.

Or/and another option:
  • Unassigned issues after version deletion

This is very dangerous and shouldn't be a practice.

  • Unassigned issues after version deletion

This could be a better option. However, ideally I would 'move' the issues first and then proceed with 'delete'.

Hi all,
I'm using Redmine in medium size company (about 200 users) since 1 year, here we have quite an issue with versions.
We have like 500 closed versions and the issues attached to those versions are correctly closed but still attached to the versions.
So we cannot delete versions.
This is quite annoying because when we try to create a query we have to go through 500 versions to find the desired ones.
That's why I'm also interested in this issue. I see that this is still in "NEW" status, so any chance it will be implemented?

Ok this might happen because we have a Project with like 20 subprojetcs.

Can you please help us?
If necessary can you, please, explain what we are doing wrong and how can we do better?

Thanks a lot!

And how about attached files? If a version is deleted and there are no issues attached to this version, files attached to the version are deleted without any warning.

I have created a new issue #31087 for the undesirable behavior. Thank you for reporting.
