How to find out if a Jira group is used for sharing a dashboard?

I need to revise all groups and remove excessive ones. Info if a group is used in permission and notification schemes or filters is provided but there is no info on dashboards.

Try this SQL:

select * from sharepermissions where sharetype ='group';

The PARAM1 column is the group name and the ID column is the shared object ID number. In order to translate the ID number into the human readable name for the dashboard, you can "find dashboards," then click "Search" to display all shared dashboards. When you hover you cursor over the link to the dashboard, look at the URL at the bottom of your browser and you can see the ID# in the URI. I'm sure there is a way to do a join and slurp it out of the DB, but I'd need to poke around more in the DB to find where the dashboard names are stored. I hope that helps.

Thank you, Dave. It helped.
