How to get creation date of customfield

Hi,

I'm trying to get creation date of customfield in jira cloud.

I saw on another post that I can retrieve this information from audit log menu but ... audit log is purged every 3 months.

So for old customfield, I don't know when some CF was created.

Do you know if there a another to get the creation date?

 

Thank you.

 

Cedric

maybe if you have some older database backup which you can install on a test instance and look in the audit log

It's on cloud not on server instance.

oh, sorry I didn't saw it

This won't help you current problem, but will going forward

Put JIRA under CR

 I STRONGLY suggest you treat JIRA like a production system, put it under change control (CR), and track all requests for any updates, especially new projects, new custom fields, changes in any of the schemes, etc. That way at least the reporter will know when the actions happen and you'll have a audit trail. I've worked many similar tools to JIRA and too many times no one knows anything about why they are configured why they are because there is no requirements or CR. Things are just done based on emails that have disappeared and hallway or lunch conversations.  

If you don't already have a separate change control tool create a JIRA project. I use a basic workflow with a few custom issue types:

Custom field: with a select list of create, update. The description would be to create a new field or modify a current select list, buttons, etc. of a current one

Create Project: I would have text fields for issue types, custom fields, select list/values, per issue types

New Issue Type: description would include all fields and workflow desired.

Workflow: Select list of Create, update, delete. Description of what needed.

Other: Select list of Notification Scheme, permission scheme, field configuration, other

This should get you started. If you aren't familiar with your CR process there should be a configuration management person to talk to.

The goal is to manage what you do and be able to track who asked for what. For instance, if someone wants a new custom field you want to check to see if there already is one you can use that they don't know about. JIRA will let you have multiple custom fields with the same name, which will just confuse you.
