Accidentally Deleted Custom Field Context

Hi All,

I am having a multi select ist field with two contexts, global and the other specifc to a project.

 

I have accidentally deleted the context for the project and that does not give search results for the project having that custom field.

 

Also tried Adding a new context with values.

 

Is there a way i can get back values on to the project?

Hi All,

Tested and found this band aid. Although there might me loss of a day's data which you might get it from database tables

1. Take a Backup of most recent file. 

2. Spin up a local instance and Restore the backup on to it

3. Export csv with Issue Key, Summary, Customfield(Customfieldname)

4. Import them on to production.

 

Thanks

Chander

Thus, one has to be careful or better use a REST client.
