I've made a Custom field that has been configured as "Global (all issues)". The field is not used on a particular screen. It is only used in a workflow Post function.
By accident I've removed the field and then the post function did not work anymore.
How can I find were Custom fields are used in workflows and maybe other functionality in Jira that I'm not aware off? I want to clean up the custom fields which are not used.
(BTW: Workflow now works fine again thanks to my Database administrator :) )
The approach that worked for me best is to export the workflows into XML and then search the custom field id using a text editor. If you have numerous workflows, it is also not a pretty solution!
Using a few JQLs you can find isues where the custom field is populated and maybe find the workflows and screens associated with that project easily.
Maybe it could be useful for someone in the future.. There is a plugin - https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/pl.com.tt.admintoolsforjira.AdminToolsForJira that have custom field usage feature. It was very helpful for me to delete couple of custom fields without digging into database. You can give it a try.
