A manual way is to look at all your permission schemes and notifications schemes for the groups they use. Then go through all project roles and do the same. Groups can also be used for sharing of filters and dashboards. Finally check all workflows for group usage in the XML. Very tedious!
I would love to see a plugin that does all this for admins
I'd suggest asking your admins for a more human answer.
I can think of around 30 different SQL queries that, while "accurate", won't tell you what you really need to know about access.
Instead of giving you a "Microsoft" answer (technically accurate, but completely useless), could you tell us what you are trying to do? What question are you trying to answer, and why?
I am currently an Intern and trying my hands in every Area of JIRA, I tried my hands in JIRA, EasyBI, BigPicture, so My JIRA admin gave me a assignment to figure out where all the groups are getting used in JIRA for Ex.
I want to extract the list.
I found this link but I have to insert all the roles and run separate query for for each which kind of make it complicated.
Need some work around for this.
Right, that's a significant project in itself, even in a small Jira.
Your list is a start, but you also need to look at
As you can tell, this is not a simple task. However, it is generally of limited use too, and hence pretty much a massive waste of time.
Go back to the real question. "I want to know where groups/users are used" is not the real question. Why do you want to know where they're used? What's the point? Why does it matter?
I'm afraid that's a circular answer - "Why do you want to know where they are used?" is not answered by "I want to look at where they are used".
Could you tell us why this matters and how it would be more useful than going into the configuration to check, understand and amend access?
Then ask them.
Take this conversation to them. Point out that "where a group is used" is a very complex thing to try to extract from Jira (even before you install any add-ons).
It is still possible, but it's going to take you a LOT longer to form SQL than it is to investigate every place where they might be used manually, and than any investigation is going to take a very very long time.
If you knew why you were doing this, you would probably save a lot of time because you could focus on the actual question.
This article comes on the top of google queries for "jira find where group is used", and does sadly not contain the answer from other similar questions.
So I'm therefore pointing out that there is a knowledge-base article for it: https://confluence.atlassian.com/jirakb/how-to-identify-group-usage-in-jira-441221524.html
I usually never comment on forums but can attest that this post is worthless and I don't understand why the question is so hard. All I want to see is the all the permission schemes (and potentially others schemes like notifications) that have a reference to the group in question. Inside the JIRA admin all you see is that the group in question has no product access which is flat garbage because the users access the product every day and are on multiple permission schemes. My use case might be far less complex than ones above, but maybe simplicity is a good place to begin?
