Search Custom Fields?


I was curious if there is an operator that will allow the searching of data input in a Custom Field?

I am using Zapier to trigger the movement of cards on my board.  The trigger contains the data that is in the Custom Field for every card on the board (each card has unique data).  But I cannot find any Search operators to look inside custom fields.

This has got to be possible right?  Sorry if I'm missing something obvious, and thank you in advance for any help with this.

Hi Robert,

I don't think custom fields are searchable. This other post includes some hints or workarounds that may help:


Hi Carlos,

Thank you so much for the quick attention.  Your answer seems to be about Jira.  I am using Trello, and curious if this will still be applicable?  Specifically, when using Zapier to automate finding a specific Trello card?

Hi Robert, yes, sorry, when I read it the first time I was thinking of JIRA and didn't notice I was in the Trello section. I remember straggling myself when using Trello if I needed to search though custom fields, but I use JIRA for more complex projects (or project configurations.) I've started some research myself. I edited my previous answer and included that other post that refers to searching through custom fields. I'll add whatever I can find in my research.

Filter cards - This is nothing but the "Search Cards" option from the Menu(not the default search).
