Extracting JQL filters through SQL query


Hello Community,

We are renaming 20 Jira project names in our global Jira instance. There are multiple Users Who saved JQL filters based on the Project names, by changing the names of Jira projects will effect the JQL filters.

Please help me with SQL query to extract all the JQL filters which used project names to create filter. 

Thanks in advance

Hi @jenne rajkumar ,

welcome to the Atlassian community!

Through the following query you can extract filtername, author and JQL

select filtername, authorname, reqcontent
from searchrequest;

Hope this helps,


Hi @Fabio Racobaldo _Herzum_  Thanks for the query, this works for view all the filters in Jira. Is there a way I can view, only filters which are being under certain project category?

Unfortunately, filters are cross projects and they are not categorized. You could search for reqcontent but it depends from your JQL filter.

Hope this helps,


Thanks for the update

You can get the saved filters like this:

select * from searchrequest

Project are in the "project" table.

With these you should be able to compile the query you're looking for.

Thanks for the answer @Aron Gombas _Midori_ I can get all the filter in our Jira instance. I'm looking to filter based on project name or project category. Is there way?
