I deleted a custom field which was the incorrect one. How do I revert back?

3 answers

If you had issues using this custom field (had values set for this field), then all the values were removed, so the only option to "revert" is to restore a backup of the whole JIRA instance. If this field was not used, you can just re-create it manually with the same configuration (contexts, screes, field configuration, etc..)

Is this possible on the cloud version? How do I go about doing this?

There is no built-in revert.

Only backup can help you here. Restore the latest one.
