Who can delete a board?

From what I can tell, any user can delete a board. From my perspective, that is NOT good. I think only an Admin or the Owner should be able to delete boards / make any major modifications to settings, etc.

For example, someone could get fired and they respond by maliciously deleting all the boards in which they are assigned? Not a good situation to be in.

Can anyone confirm if this is correct (that any user can delete a board)?

I was thinking the same thing! Also only owners should be able to delete workspaces. Also Deleting folders should also be deleted by owners aswell, and then maybe a permission setting for letting managers or users delete or add too.

Hey guys @joe.davis, @zeljkocelikovic, @lokkom,

You’re right:

But since we’ve recently started focusing more on B2B, this is definitely something to improve.

Our CTO will try to switch the ‘board deleting’ permission to ‘Owner’ and ‘Admin’ roles only today or tomorrow. :slight_smile:

What is the status on this? From what I can tell, a restricted user invited to a board can remove the owner who originally created the board and can delete the board. I’m not finding any way to change the security settings for this.

Hi @cio,

Welcome to the Community Forum.

Where did you see an option for a restricted member to delete the member? We’ve deleted all possibilities when it comes to restricted members deleting boards.

BTW. Admins and full members can delete boards only from board settings.

(I’ve just got a hint from our developers that “Delete Folder” permission also works for Delete boards). I’ll make sure to test that in a few hours, I’m running late for a meeting. :slight_smile:

Just discovered a huge bug. Thank you SO MUCH. We’re on it!

@coa, my apologies for lack of follow up. Got a bit of a start reviewing Infinity for use but our team has been stretched too thin to even experiment much this past month. Coming back to it now. We’ll check more thoroughly on this specific issue and be testing other team/multi-team and possibly ‘multi-tenant’ collaboration scenarios for security and manageability.

Thanks,

Joshua
