How can I change a custom field's value throughout the entire project, including Structures/Filters?

Hello everybody,

My team and I are planning on doing some restructuring of our JIRA environment. To be more specific, we want to change some label names and some Lead Project names.

Unfortunately, whenever I change the name of custom field, regardless of it's nature, even though it applies to all the issues,  it ruins all the JIRA Structures and Filters that used a JQL Query that contained the specific custom field value. I'm talking about thousands of structure and filters that suddenly stop working.

Is there a way to apply the name changing so that it changes everywhere in the structures and filters?

Hello Puia, Alessandro from ALM Works here.

Could you confirm if you are using Structure On-Premise (Server or Data-center) or Structure Cloud?
