Are you sure you looked correctly?



The other alternative is you're on Server (snippet is from data center), which maybe doesn't have that kind of filtering. Although I think I remember it tracking custom fields too at the time, but I haven't had hands on Server in so long I can't remember.


Either way, other than audit log you won't get either creation date nor the author - Jira doesn't store it anywhere other than audit logs.

At most you could figure out if you can find it through access logs (either tomcat or reverse proxy), but if memory serves, creating custom fields happens through an http form so you wouldn't find it there either, so if that is the case you would need to log the request data which would also be rather painful, given a few.. technicalities.
