how can I find the customFieldId for "parent"?

Geneviève Carton de Wiart December 4, 2023

I can get the id of the epic ink field customFieldId=10008 via

then selecting epic link and the url shows!default.jspa?customFieldId=10008

But I can't find the new field "parent" in this custom fields list, and don't know where else to find its id.   I need it to update my config file to upload tasks in bulk in Jira.

Hi @Geneviève Carton de Wiart 

Please see this knowledge base article for the various methods of finding a custom field id:

One of the quickest is just using a REST API function with a browser, as that will also show if the field is supported by public issue functions.  This how-to shows how to find the smart value (for automation) and the custom field id at the same time.

Kind regards,

Hi thanks

Id of parent seems to be parent. Will test when possible.

Hi @Geneviève Carton de Wiart 

Sorry for pinging this thread, but I'm now running into a similar issue. Did you have any luck?

Geneviève Carton de Wiart May 2, 2024

we were using the epic link for a bulk load of tasks (via csv file) 

setting the field to "parent" in our config file did not seem to do the trick

- we are still using the epic link id and it still works (for now) 

so.. no clear answer to the original question, sorry
