Cannot edit or delete Scripted JQL Function due to # character

In the process of creating tests for new Scripted JQL functions, I created one named ''attempt#1''

The problem now is that that for some odd reason we can't edit, delete or disable the function. Any attempt to change or do anything with it leads to the normal edit page, but there's no window visible or anything on the page.

It seems to be due to the # character.

I'd report this as a bug but the issue now is that I still can't remove the function from the list, and it's showing up in the autocomplete in advanced search.

Is there anywhere that this data is stored so that we can specifically delete that one function?

Just replace the # character in the edit url with %23 and you'll be redirected to the edit page where you can change the name:
