Is there a way to know which custom fields are used in which projects from Custom Fields Page?

As JIRA Administrators, we have access to Custom Fields page wherein we can create new custom fields. Once the field is created, we associate them to screens. And screen schemes are then associated to Projects.


Is there a way to know, from the Custom Field page just like screens or workflows, as to which custom fields are getting used in which projects?


We want to rename & delete certain custom fields but before doing that, we would like to know this custom fields are used in which all projects.

Hi @milanchheda

Take a look at this post of mine using SQL to answer a similar question.

There is no quick way to get this info from the Jira pages.

Thanks Tom, but I don't have access to database. 

Is there an alternative? Or any add-on?

Hi Milan

This looks useful

I’ve not tried it. There may others on the Atlassian Marketplace 

This looks like a helpful add-on. Thanks Tom!

Alternatively, you may have a look at the list of screens this field is added and get the list of projects use those screens. May not be 100% accurate but still it helps.

Thanks @Vishnukumar Vasudevan, but that would be completely manual, cumbersome and error-prone. Also, the number of projects in JIRA are lot, and hence there are many screens too. Doing it manually, is probably the last resort but definitely requires lots of effort, of going thru each screen manually. 

Yes, it is. But can be consider if you are not supposed to install any third party add-ons in your instances and agree that it's error-prone.
