Search workflows for deactivated user Edited

I am looking for a way to seach all my workflows for deactivated users.

Specifically, if I have a termed employee and deactivate their JIRA account, how can I find all workflows with a post funtion that assigns the issue to that person?

I know that I can export an individual workflow to xml and then search for the user name.  I don't want to do this for each workflow.  I am hoping to find a way to just search all workflows.

I would settle with being able to export all workflows to xml at once.  Is that an option?

I am having trouble even finding google results on this topic.

Hi Jennifer,

Workflows are stored as xml in the database. You can query the database directly and parse the xml content.

Look up jiraworkflows table on the database.

select * from jiraworkflows;

The xml is stored in the descriptor column.
