    somehow it doesn't work on my 7.2.3 The issue seems to have been reported a number of times since 2014. 2 years and no fix? not nice. Anyway, I spent $10 and got script runner that works (and has a lot of other features)

    Hi Mircea,

    Do you suffer from this bug: https://tngtech-oss.atlassian.net/browse/USFJ-6 ? We have installed the add-on in several instances and it always worked great, so we did not see the need to fix anything. If that bug still occurs, we will have a look into it though.

    Scriptrunner is definitely an alternative though - but it will be much more expensive in bigger instances.

    Amazing plugin - solves the problem of private user filters that reference deleted projects. Worked fine even though our users are all in a remote LDAP. Really saved the day, as the broken private filters were causing Configuration Manager for JIRA to fail its integrity check.

    This is a great add-on and I use it constantly. Any chance you can release something similar for Confluence?
