As a manager to a project, i cannot delete useless comments or comments that can be considered spam, added to a useful issue. The 2 possible ways of dealing with this are: delete the (useful) issue or edit the useless comment to it. Is this a feature or a bug?

You can "delete" comments by clicking on the edit button and cleaning up the comment (removing all text). When you save, it'll detect that the comment is empty, thus deleting it.

There could possibly be a button to replace that "feature" though.

A icon for this would be the best thing to do. Though it will only delete the notes and not attribute changes.

  • Subject changed from Comments in Issues to Icon to delete an issue comment (Journal)
  • Category changed from Issue tracking to User interface

IIRC I contributed something like that on, I'll try to find it back.

Does it have a separate permission?

No, it uses the default "edit issue" permission. The proposed delete button is also just a shortcut for an existing (but admittedly well hidden) feature.
