Is there a way to find out which filters will be broken if I rename a status (Jira Cloud)?

I need to rename a Status and expect it will affect a number of queries.  Is there a way to figure out which queries it will affect before making the change?

I'm using Jira Cloud, so I don't have access to the raw SQL.

Thanks,

Hi Derian,

You can make a REST API call to retrieve all the existing filters. This will provide the owner and the JQL. Then search for the old status name.

I'm trying to use the REST API using python, but have run into the same problem as this: https://community.atlassian.com/t5/Questions/REST-API-Tutorial-Python-sample-fails-unexpected-keyword/qaq-p/586994

The proposed work-around of using jira-python doesn't seem like it'll work in this case, because jira-python doesn't have a getFilters api.
