Deleting one filter at a time with the slow response of the system does not scale to 500+ filters. how do I delete multiple filters at a time?

Thiis question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Managing shared filters


How do I delete multiple filters at one time? I have over 500 filters that I created over time, and to clean up the ones I don't use anymore means deleting them one at a time, which would takes hours and days. Is there a way to specify a list of filters that can be deleted in a bulk fashion?


I am using the cloud hosted version of the system.

If you are doing a large operation to remove filters, I would strongly recommend that you investigate using the API.

There is documentation here on the REST API which is available to work with saved user filters:


This will allow you to very quickly cycle through your filters and delete the ones you no longer need.
