Where did you find this question?  Is this part of Jira certification or training in some way?

To try to answer your question, just about all of these can negatively affect how Jira works, for the exception being watched issues.   I don't believe that watching issues has any affect in regards to deleting a group from Jira.    There is some more details about what can happen when deleting a group in Jira in View Create or Delete a Group - Delete a group.  There is a note on that page about doing this:

Before you delete

  • Check whether the group is being used by any permission schemesemail notification schemesissue security levels, or saved filters.
  • Consider the impact this may have on users in that group. For example, if a user receives access to a specific feature only from this group, then the user will no longer have that permission and it may impact their work.

Since Boards in Jira are dependent on shared filters, they too are susceptible to having problems displaying if they are setup to share to a group that has been deleted from Jira.

Hi, @Andy Heinzer !


I'm researching a little about what I remember about the certification and I ended up finding this post, I believe that one of the impacts is also the visibility of the comments.



Hi Karim,

I've test all possibilities and all the options are very important but, the announcement talking about a error message. In my test only Permission Schemes and Group Subscriptions show me the message when i tried delete the  group.

So the answer is  Group Subscriptions

I created a group, subscribed it to a filter and then deleted the group, a modal popped up advising that you should check certain things like Permissions Schemes when deleting a group but nothing specific to Group Subscriptions.
