Can you find the "Advanced searching - development fields reference" in the Postgres database?

We're currently trying to track our deployment frequency using our Jira Postgres Database. In order to do that though we need to somehow track the "Advanced searching - development fields reference". The Confluence article only shows how to do it through JQL but we need to do it through SQL for reporting purposes. Looking at the Schema information I'm not sure where those fields would be stored. Any help on this would be very appreciated!

Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

This way lies madness!  The Jira database is not intended to be reported off, it's a data store, and it's evolved into something that is an utter nightmare to report from.

I very strongly recommend that you stop even looking (and change the database password for your read-only reporting user so that no one else tries it).

In this case, you are on a hiding to nothing anyway - most of the development field data is not even held in the database.  They're calculated from remote data, cached, and indexed. 

JQL works off the index, not the database, so you can search there, but SQL is never going to find stuff that is not in the database.
