Find filter dependencies before deleting a filter

Is there a way to find filter dependencies without having to search in the Database so that I can safely delete a filter?

i.e. I want to ensure

  1. The filter I want to delete, is not used by other filters
  2. Is not used in a dashboard
  3. Has no subscriptions
  4. Is not used in an Agile Board
  5. Is not used in other plugins

I use this code to get all subscriptions via Script console of ScriptRunner:

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.subscription.FilterSubscription
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.subscription.SubscriptionManager

StringBuilder result = new StringBuilder();
SubscriptionManager subscriptionManager = ComponentAccessor.getSubscriptionManager();
for(FilterSubscription subscription: subscriptionManager.getAllFilterSubscriptions()){
    result.append("{ " + subscription.getLastRunTime().toString() + " / " + subscription.getFilterId() + " }")
}

return result.toString()

And this one to get all filters:

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.search.SearchRequest;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.search.SearchRequestManager;
import com.atlassian.jira.sharing.SharePermission;
import com.atlassian.jira.user.ApplicationUser;
import com.atlassian.jira.user.util.UserUtil;

ArrayList<String> Filters = new ArrayList<String>();
UserUtil userUtil = ComponentAccessor.getUserUtil();
SearchRequestManager searchRequestManager = ComponentAccessor.getComponent(SearchRequestManager.class);
ArrayList<SearchRequest> FilterList;
String CurFilter = "";
boolean HasGlobal;
String CurPerm;
for(ApplicationUser CurUser: (ArrayList<ApplicationUser>) userUtil.getAllApplicationUsers())
{
    FilterList = (ArrayList<SearchRequest>) searchRequestManager.getAllOwnedSearchRequests(CurUser);
    for (SearchRequest Search: FilterList)
    {
        CurFilter = Search.getName() + "#" + Search.getQuery() + "/" + Search.getOwnerUserName() + "#";

        HasGlobal = false;

        for (SharePermission Perm: Search.getPermissions().getPermissionSet())
        {
            CurPerm = Perm.getType().get();
            CurFilter += CurPerm + "/" + Perm.getParam1() + "/" + Perm.getParam2() + "#";

            if (CurPerm == "global")
                HasGlobal = true;
        }

        CurFilter += " \n"
        if (!Filters.contains(CurFilter))
            if (HasGlobal)
            {
                Filters.add(CurFilter);
            }
    }
}
String Result = "";
for (String Filter: Filters)
{
    Result += Filter + "\n@";
}
return Result
