Remove Issues from a Structure Based on a JQL Query


Structure for Jira allows you to create structures to organise issues and projects. This script removes specific issues from a structure based on a given JQL query.


As a project manager, I want to remove some issues that no longer apply to a structure. With this script, I can identify these issues using a JQL query, and remove them from the specified structure.
