What should a filter/subscription email return that searches for issue type no longer in a project?

Raj Vora August 30, 2023

In one of our projects, we used to have an issue type which a number of filters (which referenced both project/issue type) were based off of. 

That issue type no longer exists in this project (but still exists in other projects), but the filters (and any corresponding subscription emails) display zero results giving the impression that the issue type still exists in the project even when it doesn't.


Is this expected or should the query throw an error?  I would think the latter.

Hi @Raj Vora 

That result sounds correct to me: no issues returned.

When an issue type is created, using it (or not) is a configuration choice due to the dynamic nature of the Jira solution.  And so if you use JQL to search, it will be present or not.

However when you try to search for a non-existent issue type, that definitely shows an error.

Kind regards,
