We've had a custom field go missing, thankfully all of the commentary has been persisted in the history for the issue.
Is there anyway in which I can find out:
the custome field was deleted?
We are using Jira 6.0.4 (with Greenhopper plugin)
You can trace the logs in /data/jira/logs/catalina.out. And on deletion of custom field it will log looks like
/secure/admin/DeleteCustomField.jspa [issue.fields.option.OptionSetPersisterImpl] All options removed for config id12550
In this line we can see the user who deleted and when, with this custom field id.
The log message you described from catalina.out actually displays the id of the FieldConfigScheme associated with the custom field that has been deleted.
e.g. I deleted custom field with id 10501. The log message read:
/secure/admin/DeleteCustomField.jspa [issue.fields.option.OptionSetPersisterImpl] All options removed for config id10601
Prior to the delete operation, my CONFIGURATIONCONTEXT table had a row that read:
ID=11217, PROJECTCATEGORY=(null), PROJECT=(null), CUSTOMFIELD=customfield_10501, FIELDCONFIGSCHEME=10601
So you need to know that relationship before you can positively confirm the details of the deletion of the custom field.
Daniel's response is more accurate as it displays the actual customfield id of the deleted field in a number of messages:
