Please carefully read the following for impact on Traceability Function.
- If certain Artifacts of an Issue Type exist, then we expect JIRA not to allow deletion of these Issue Types.
- However during testing, we have found that JIRA does allow deletion of an Issue Type, whithout migrating these to other Issue types.
- If this happens, it will lead to database inconsistency, since RMsis will continue to reference these Issues and the Issue Type.
User is advised utmost caution while performing this operation.
