How to change customfield ID

Hi Friends,

I lost my cusotmfield and recreate the same but I lost my previous custom field data, Can anyone suggest to restore the same again, I guess previous data has been mapped with customfield ID.

Thanks in advance !

If you've deleted your custom field, all your data has gone as well.  Using the old customfield ID is a waste of time - there's nothing there any more.

You need to go look at a backup if you've done this.

Fixed in Field configuration description, Field has been configured for two field configuration.

Thanks Nic for your valuable support !

Thanks Nic,

You are right, all data has gone and I restore earlier backup, Actually the problem I am facing in jQuery.

I have jqQuery implementation which shows a button after database information custom field which works only when I delete current cf and recreate new db info cf.

This jQuery implementation is written in Description of DB cf.

( The same script is working on different env )

SOS !

Mm, that sounds like a separate question (oh, and don't use javascript)
