search one value in multiple fields

Is there an easier way to search for one value in multiple fields than using a bunch of ORs with each field, kind of like the IN functionality, but in reverse?

Edit: The fields are custom fields of non-text type containing numeric IDs.

For Text fields you can use "Text" keyword in JQL to search across all the text fields.

Thanks but they are not text fields.

It's not possible as of now.
