Deleted the story points field

Is there a way to get the story points field back after it’s been deleted? Or recreate it with the same ID so the reports all function again?

Hey Jen, 

Sorry to hear about your troubles. Through JIRA the only way to restore a custom field with the same ID would be to perform a full system restore to some point prior to the field being deleted. This would overwrite your entire instance with the data contained in the backup file. 

You can create a new field for story points. It is just a " numeric" field type within the system. Just calling it "Story Points" won't make all of your historical reports work again. It sounds like you knew that already though. 

Sorry!
