In our Jira we have, 422500 filters, some of which are owned by disabled users. We want to cleanup.
we have below data with us:
|Filter Owner||Filter Owner Active||Filter Name||Filter ID||Private or Shared||View Permissions||Edit Permissions||Favorite Count||Used in Boards||Used in Dashboards|
Any idea/best practice to check on cleanup?
like eg: for Inactive User, private we have 4786 to delete
