How can I get a list of all JIRA fields?

Hi all,

I need to get a list of all JIRA fields, including systm and custom fields.

Actually, I have found a way to get a list of custom fields from database:

select ID,cfname from customfield;

but what about system fields? How can I do this?


Many thanks.

You can do it manually by looking the list of all fields in the field configuration and eliminating the custom ones.

Joe, you mean fieldconfiguration table? Tried to select all from this table but there is no "Affects Version/s", "Component/s" etc...

You can run this query to get a list of all your fields per field configuration:

select fl.Name as `FieldConfiguration` , f.*
from fieldlayoutitem f
inner join fieldlayout fl on fl.ID = f.fieldlayout;


This was written for MySQL, so if you have another DB, you may have to tweak the syntax a little
