how do you know if a filter is being used for a board in JIRA?

Because of this issue: https://confluence.atlassian.com/jirakb/boards-are-not-visible-after-the-filter-is-deleted-779158656.html is there an easy way to determine if a filter is being used for a JIRA board?

From what I can tell in the Manage Filters and the Shared Filters area, there is no way to tell this.

The only way I've found is to take the Filter ID and query the database directly.  I haven't really looked to see if there's a REST call that could do it and even if there was, I'm not sure you could get a single result (set) back rather than a large list of results.

It will be something like 

select * from AO_60DB71_RAPIDVIEW rv
where rv.SAVED_FILTER_ID = yourFilterID

That will give you the names and owners of any Agile boards using the filter
