I think I've determined that all important filters use "Rank" so I want to delete the other two. Would re-inserting the row in the customfield, fieldconfiguration, and configurationcontext tables be sufficient to rollback if needed?
In query form, these rows:
select * from configurationcontext cc, fieldconfiguration fc, customfield cf where cc.customfield = fc.fieldid and fc.fieldid = concat('customfield_', cf.ID) and cf.ID = <id to be deleted>
Do you mean as stored in customfieldvalue or is there another table? It turns out lexoranks have their own table AO_60DB71_LEXORANK and the ranking data itself is not deleted https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JSW-13098?src=confmacro&_ga=1.80024983.1470128015.1477686267
Ah, sorry, I misread it and got the context wrong. Didn't realise it was the Software ranking field.
No, that does not get cleared, so, in theory, yes, you could replace the custom field entry. But you'll need to check the field configurations and contexts are added back correctly as well, and, as usual, reindex the whole system.
I would treat the deletion of the custom fields as a one-way action. You can recreate them as new custom fields of that type if needed. I don't recommend having more than one Rank field of type Global Rank since it takes more time to build the Lexorank values. I don't recommend keeping any of the older kind of Rank fields either.
