Change Custom Field

Hi,

In our instance of JIRA, we have almost 700 custom fields. Most of them are duplicates.

Is there a way to make some clean-up, like migrating data from a custom field to another one?

If it's possible, is it possible without executing SQL code on the database?

Thanks,

Hi,

I don't think there is a way to do that since you can't edit custom field types or merge them into another.

The only way I can think of is directly on the database.

Be sure to have a backup of your instance and try it on a testing environment first, if you are doing this on the DB.

Hope this helps,

Marcus

Thanks, I'll try that on my testing environment.
