Why are JQL queries hard coded with plain text for custom fields? I just renamed a custom field and broke a bunch of saved filters in the process. Why are JQL queries not set up to reference each field's specific ID number?
You can use names or ids to create the queries. It is up to the user to decide what they want to use.
People go for names to make the query more readable, and that is exactly the reason why that option is supported. Unfortunately, the filter will be broken if the field is renamed. No easy solution for that I am afraid!
