How do you find a field ID in a team project?

Trying to find a field ID in a team project...any ideas?

2 answers

Hi Rob. I'm not sure if you are looking for the custom field IDs in Jira, but if you are, the easiest way I found to do this is to perform an advanced search. Add the field/s you want to the column list and then sort on it.

Once sorted, you will see the custom field name (number) in the JQL.

In the example in this image, I sorted by Story Points, but you can see that the ORDER BY parameter is cf[10014] where 'cf' = Custom Field.

Hi @Rob ,

Welcome to Atlassian Community!

To get the project and custom field ID, you can use API.

You just need to change the "your-domain" and paste on your browser to search.
Then, search for the project name, and it will show the ID.

For the custom field, you can also search by name.

Note that, to make sure it's the correct custom field, check if the project ID matches.

perfect! with this I am be able to explore a lot of information in a easy way

@Kevin Johnson this sounds like a clever way to find the ID of a team-managed project's custom fields, but I'm not able to get it to work and the URL you provided for reference is directing me to an error page.  

Do you have another URL you could provide?
