A way to determine filters that use a project name

I'm looking into changing a project name in our system (it is our most heavily used project, so tons of issues and filters), any way to see what filters are using this project name, so I can anticipate and minimize the potential impact of breaking these filters? Thanks.

Here're some options:

  1. If you have a staging/test instance which is a clone of your production instance -

    1. Install Integrity Check for JIRA
    2. Rename the project.
    3. Run integrity check (the one provided by the add-on not the JIRA built-in one) - you need to check the "Check Filters" option
    4. The add-on will show you a list of all broken filters which refer "missing" projects and this list will include all the filters that use the "old" project name
  2. Do it via SQL query agains the JIRA database 

    select * from searchrequest where reqcontent like '%My Project%';


thanks Boris, plugin seems to work.
