Login as JIRA adminstrator,  click  the admin  button  Issues > Custom fields, there is a button at the top right had side of every custom field when you click it you will see Configure | Edit | Translate you can click any of this then you will have a link like this


then change this number to the one you know 10008 so it will be like this

you will be in the interface of this custom field.

There is another way but time consuming, you can press F12 on your keyboard,
click on inspect from the developer view of your browser(lets say fire fox mozila)
then iterate over custom field window in JIRA by moving cursor of you mouse
to every custom field name until you find the one that has the number 10008

If you have sys-administrator right, you should be able to see the name of the field after entering the following link and ID.

for example:


I have admin rights, and I tried this but I'm not getting the result.

The above solutions are easier, but you can also use this script to do the same

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.screen.FieldScreenFactory
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.screen.FieldScreenManager
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.screen.FieldScreenSchemeManager
import com.atlassian.jira.web.action.admin.issuefields.screens.ViewFieldScreens
import com.atlassian.jira.workflow.WorkflowManager

def sb = new StringBuffer()
def issueManager = ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager()
def customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()
def cField = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObject("customfield_id")


return sb.toString()
