Saved Filter JQL getting modified automatically

Hi,

we are using Shared Filter for default system Dashboard. Filter contains the JQL with the Project name , some times the JQL in the Saved filter is getting changed , we have Project Name column in JQL which is getting changed automatically with the number Value . so the Dashboards is throwing error . not sure how the Saved Filter is getting modified automatically  .

JIRA displays projects as numbers (project ids) if you don't have permission to view the project. sometimes

This can happen if you change a variable that a filter uses.  In this case, if your filter says "project = project-name" and someone renames the project, the filter may resort to using the project ID instead.

Project name is Constant , "project = Vijay"  & after some time only some of the filters changes to  "project = 1001" , so that Dashboards were throwing error . then again manually updating it to "project = Vijay"  , 

Also i have tried using Project Name & Project Key in the Filter ,  both are getting modified to 1001 , i am not able to trace any thing in the logs too.

 

It's storing the project ID for some reason, I'm not sure why, but if you use or edit the filter behind it, it will save it.

Filters are Shared with everyone which dashboard uses , is there any to debug or increase the log level to check why the changes are happening to check if some event triggering the changed ?

 

I think the audit-log will capture updates made by users (Note that filters themselves don't just change randomly - your humans have to trigger updates, although this could be done by users in a number of places.  Unless there's an add-on written to do it)
