Bulk delete workflows, screens in JIRA cloud.

Hi Team,


Is there a way we can get a list of unused workflows, workflow schemes, Screens, screen schemes and delete them in JIRA cloud?

Hello Ash,

I hope you are having a nice day.

You can use the add-on Script Runner and run the following Script to delete all inactive workflows (Except the default):

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor

def workflowManager = ComponentAccessor.workflowManager
def schemeManager = ComponentAccessor.workflowSchemeManager

def sb = new StringBuffer()

workflowManager.workflows.each {
if(!it.systemWorkflow) {
def schemes = schemeManager.getSchemesForWorkflow(it)
if (schemes.size() == 0) {
sb.append("Deleting workflow: ${}\n")
return sb.toString()

You can customize the Script above to delete the schemes you want too.

P.S: System default workflow should be assigned to some scheme, otherwise the script won't work.

For more information about it, please check the question below:

Let me know if this information helps/

@Petter Gonçalves this is the error i see while i'm running the above code.


org.codehaus.groovy.control.MultipleCompilationErrorsException: startup failed: Script1.groovy: 1: unable to resolve class com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor @ line 1, column 1. import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor ^ 1 error at at at$evaluate$0.callCurrent(Unknown Source) at$evaluate$0.callCurrent(Unknown Source) at at Source)

@Petter Gonçalves 

Thanks for the script, works perfectly.

Is there any script to delete unused Field Configuration Schemes, Field Configurations and Fields?

Also, Unused Issue Types Schemes and Issue Types.

Thanks in advance. 

@AshDid you solve that error?

I can't resolve it on jira cloud.


Thank you
