Group usage in Cloud?

This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: View, create, or delete a group

This article mentions that before you delete a group, it is a good idea to: "Check whether the group is being used by any permission schemes, email notification schemes, issue security levels, or saved filters."

When I view a particular group in our JIRA Cloud instance, no usage information is displayed.  Is there another way to get this information before I delete a group?

HI Alex,

In standard JIRA it is easy:

In cloud you can always create a dummy user and add him to groups which you would like to check. I don't know more sophisticated method to check it in cloud JIRA.

How would adding a dummy user help me check how the group is being used?  I'm looking to see if the group is being used by any permission schemes, email notification schemes, issue security levels, or saved filters.

If you add a dummy user to a group, you can see, via the "View Jira Project Roles" in the User Management screen for the dummy user, which project roles it has inherited for each project. This doesn't show you which email notification schemes, issue security levels, or saved filters the group is being used by, but it does give you some information about which projects are associated with the group and is a starting point.
