Hi @Jen-Qology

go to custom fields page, click on cog/gear icon and hover over links from drop down

eg:- "view", "edit" , "configure"

the URL at the bottom left would show id of custom field, it has "customfield" string appended.

eg:- customfield_10008 or customfieldId=10008(hover over "screens" link)

Go to the list of custom fields and hover the cursor over one of the administrative links (like edit, configure or delete).  The link should be displayed by the browser, and it will contain the string &id=xxxxx.  You need the numbers for the xxxxx

JIRA Command Line Interface (CLI) has the getCustomFieldList action:

jira --action getCustomFieldList

If you are using Chrome then just right click on the field and Inspect element to get custom field Id
