When I tried to delete an 'issue type', I'm seeing the following message:
Note: This issue type cannot be deleted - there are currently 1 matching issues with no suitable alternative issue types (only issues you have permission to see will be displayed, which may be different from the total count shown on this page).
In order for an issue type to be deleted, it needs to be associated with one workflow, field configuration and field screen scheme across all projects. If this is not the case, Jira can not provide a list of valid replacement issue types.
I have searched for the 1 matching issue and can't find it in our system
and the query did return issues that have that issue type in use?
If that is the case there are 2 options
