how to check how many instances of a specific customfield type are being used in JIRA

Hi .

I have created a specific customfield type (extended from a MultiSelectCFType). Lets call this myCustomField for now.

I would like to check how many instances of this custom field type are being in used in JIRA. Assume some number are being used and have been assigned to the relevant screens/ project contexts etc. Meaning the instances are being used in JIRA.

I would like to do this check via code (from a webworks action class).

How can I do this?

You can iterate on the custom fields using CustomFieldManager and look at the types to check if it is the one you are looking for.

Hi @Jobin.
Thanks for your reply .

Havent tested it but sounds like it should work. Will try it out in code soon.
