Exporting Custom Field Values (indexed + archived)


Hi all,

Right now, we are walking through a process to reduce the number of custom fields in our environment. A key part of that process is backing up a custom field's data before its deletion, which we will then store indefinitely.

I know that through JQL, we can quickly produce a view of tickets with data associated with a specific field and export. My issue is that, as far as I am aware, ticket searches are based on the index and do not cover archived ticket data. Consequently, I will not get a full view from a JQL search of my potential scope of data. Unarchiving the data to push it into the index at our scale isn't a feasible option.

Maybe I should be going to the database directly, but I would currently prefer a solution that was run out of JIRA in a structured and safe manner as I'm staring down the barrel of needing to remove approximately 400-600 fields.

In so far as the export output, a CSV would be delightful. Any suggestions?
