To find the Custom Field id for a particular custom field

I ned to find out the custom field ID for a particular custom field without using the database. Is there any way in which I can find it out using the user interface

1) Go to Administration in JIRA
2) Go to Issue Fields > Custom Fields
3) On the page that lists the custom fields, hover the mouse over the "Edit" hyperlink in the "Operations" column
4) It should have a URL like: http://localhost:8080/secure/admin/EditCustomField!default.jspa?id=10000
5) The ID=XXXX contains the ID value of the custom field. In the example above, the ID is simply 10000

If you use https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/com.decadis.xtools-for-jira/server/overview, the IDs of every configuration element will be shown next to the name:-)

you can find at Administration > Custom Fields - just hover over the Edit dropdown from the cog on right side of the custom field

Are you sure about this?? I checked it, and found out that custom field ID is not given there..

yes, we can find that when you hover the edit option then left side down corner you see the full url with id or when you click on edit option then on url you can see the id (it will show as: http://localhost:8080/secure/admin/EditCustomField!default.jspa?id=10001)

thanks it worked...:)

what about after it's been deleted? we're trying to figure out what custom field was deleted by someone...and only got the ID to go by...
