Looking for script or SQL to retrieve unuse custom fields Edited

JIRA 6.2.2


I have 600 custom fields and would like to do clean up.

Is there a script (script runner)/SQL that returns custom fields have not been used for the pass 6 months?

I am aware I can do filter like:
"My custom field" is not EMPTY and createdDate < endOfMonth(-6)

but I don't want to do that 600 times.

Also aware there is/are plug-ins but looking for script (script runner)/SQL.

def issueManager = ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager()
def user = ComponentAccessor.getJiraAuthenticationContext().getUser()def
customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getComponent(CustomFieldManager)

List<CustomField> cfObjects = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjects()

for (cf in cfObjects) {
        def query = jqlQueryParser.parseQuery(cf.getClauseNames().getPrimaryName() + " is not EMPTY and created > -180d")
        def results = searchProvider.search(query, user, PagerFilter.getUnlimitedFilter())

       if (results.total == 0) {
            //these are the unused fields
            log.debug(cf.getName() + "," + cf.getClauseNames().getPrimaryName() + "," + cf.getCustomFieldType().name)
