Remove All Generators from a Structure


Structure for Jira allows you to create structures to organise issues and projects. A generator is an element which you can add to a structure and acts as a rule, automatically populating or filtering issues in a structure. This script removes all previously added generators in a structure.


As a Jira administrator, I want to change the way my structure is filtered. To do this, I want to remove all the generators from a misconfigured structure. Using this script, I can quickly and easily remove them all at once, allowing me to add the new generators required.
