This probably didn't exist at the time the question was asked, but now there is a Bulk delete custom fields Jira (Server/DC) REST API that'll do it.

Thanks @WW  For sharing the latest API doc.

Also a btw, running the bulk delete custom fields can cause severe performance issues as I discovered.

Granted, we have a huge instance of Jira. I'm not sure if it'd do the same on a small instance.

Unfortunately it's not possible, you can vote for those feature request :


If you have a add on like scriptrunner, you can maybe write some code (look at the comment in the first link )


Hope this helps

Anyways thanks
