Could not delete saved search because it is referenced

Hi All

I've recently deleted one of my projects (which has completed moved to github) and the only thing that is left of the project is a saved search. But somehow I can't get rid of it because I get the following message:

    Could not delete saved search, because it is referenced as:
Backlog for agile board of <OTHER_PROJECT>

I understand why it can't delete the saved search but I can't find it referenced anywhere. How can I figure out where this saved search is linked from and how do I get rid of it?


Is the <OTHER_PROJECT> an actual agile board that's still active? Your backlog search is on the left side of that board, there's usually an icon of two stacked pieces of paper
that reveal the backlog. In feint gray type is the selected backlog search:
Just change that and you should resolve the dependency.
Ok your advice pointed me in the right direction. It turns out I somehow have multiple boards(?), all called the same thing. But one of those boards still had the old saved search as it's backlog search. Once I removed that I could delete the saved search. Now all I have to do is figure out how to get rid of all those boards (or maybe single board with multiple copies?).

And that worked like a charm :)

Thanks heaps
