Search for custom fields across boards

Anyone know how to search for custom field values across boards? Keyword search works within the board but say you create a custom field, Product Name =  Apple as an example,  which appears across boards, I can't seem to search for the custom field across boards.

Appreciate any help

@Neeraj M there's no built-in way to do it, you can do it using the API, here's a Trellinator function that would do it:

Note that the Custom Fields API is very heavy so there's a 2 second delay for each card, otherwise you'll run into a rate limit, so it'll take a long time to find the list of matching cards across all boards, but it'll finish eventually.

You can read more about Trellinator here:
