How do I find Projects that are using this Plug-In? (Project Specific Select Field)

I want to search for which projects in JIRA are using the "Project Specific Plug-in", but as far as I know, you have to go to each individual Project and look for whether that project has any custom fields that were created with this plug-in. This can be a monstrously large task if you have a lot of Projects in your database. Is there an easier way to find any projects that are using this plug-in?

This can be easily achieved by running an SQL query against the JIRA database. Something like this:

select * from project where ID in 
select distinct jis.project from customfieldvalue cv 
join jiraissue jis on 
where customfield in 
(select id from customfield where customfieldtypekey='com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.customfieldtypes:textfield')

You have to replace the com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.customfieldtypes:textfield with the typekey of the project specific custom field.
