Can I find out in which dashboards a filter is used?


I like to clean up a little amongst my shared filters and wonder how I can find out if other people used them in their dashboards. Is there a query for such?

Thanks for your attention.

If you have scriptrunner you can do it in a indirect way, from change filter ownership built in function you can see the filters that each dashboard uses per user.

Hope that helps

Hi Kostas, thanks for your answer. We don not have Scriptrunner. Do you know of another way, just with JIRA itself?

Hi Evelin,

another way is to do a query in JIRA database. A first step to see which filters are used in dashboard gadgets can be done with the following query.

SELECT * FROM gadgetuserpreference WHERE USERPREFvalue LIKE '%filter%'

you can also join tables gadgetuserpreference and searchrequest so you have filter names next to ids.

Hope that helps

Kostas, thanks a lot. We will try that.

No prob,

Hope it works.
