Hi there,

as developer I know "simple" ways to retrieve the custom field key / id (customfield_123 / 123).

Now I search for a more convenient way for Jira admins / users to get those (not just the field names).

 

Thanks in advance!

Hey Paul,

Another option might be to try out the Revyz Configuration Manager for Jira app.

https://marketplace.atlassian.com/apps/1231935/revyz-configuration-manager-for-jira?tab=overview&hosting=cloud

There you can get a list of all of the custom fields and their ID in one view. You can do a free trial and see if it works for you. It's also very affordable. Full transparency, I am an advisor for the app.

Thanks for the hint. But I was hoping to find a solution without any third party apps.

Hmm, the Marketplace Partner doesn't want to use a third party app.   :-)   Just messing with you.

Hi @Paul Pasler 

Using the API

https://confluence.atlassian.com/jirakb/how-to-find-any-custom-field-s-ids-744522503.html

But the UI way of checking the URL its the one I see almost everyone uses.

Thanks for the answer. I know about the API (which is indeed the way I would do it as a developer ^^).
