Delete all issues in a project


#1

How can I delete all issues in a project?

In UI I can only delete 25 issues at once, and I need to delete a big number of issues in my project.

Thanks,
Amir

We don’t have a simple way to delete everything. Is there a reason you want to do that? It’s generally not what users want and we had many complaints before of users accidentally deleting everything too many times, so we removed the feature.

You could easily use our API to write a script that queries everything and deletes them, but I don’t think this will be a feature we provide in the UI.

Thanks for the reply Matt.

I can check the API then if I have some free time.

Also depending on your use case, it might make sense to just “resolve all issues”. Usually the reason we hear for wanting this to start with a clean slate, and while I definitely get that, it’s generally better to avoid that situation (or use a diff project if you really need that).

my case - I had typo in project and got huge errors count in my sentry project. In order to clear all of them you could execute from command line

curl -i https://sentry.io/api/0/projects/YOUR_LOGIN/YOUR_PROJECT/groups/ -d '{"status": "resolved"}' -H 'Content-Type: application/json' -H 'Authorization: Bearer YOUR_API_KEY' -X PUT

You may need to execute this command few times, until actually all issues will be resolved

Just to avoid future replies: Its unlikely we’ll offer this functionality anytime soon, let alone ever. The only reason for deletion in Sentry is that you need to comply with retention policies or you need to remove data that has been deemed sensitive. Given that neither of these is “delete all events”, we’re not going to offer that feature. If you want to “remove all data”, you can remove the project. If you want to “start over with Sentry”, you simply can’t do that without creating a new project. That said, there’s little to no reason to “start over” given Sentry’s focus is on “whats happening recently” and that will continue to be even more true for our product.
