      Hi everyone,

      We're happy to announce that we have added functionality to help you identify and delete multiple CFs.

      This should solve some of you issues related to CF deletion. 

       

      Custom Field admin screen will contain two extra crucial pieces of information about the custom fields:

      1. The time of last update of the value in any issue or the last time an issue was created with non-default value of the custom field.
      1. The number of issues for which the custom field has a value.

       
      On top of that admin will have the ability to

      • Filter and sort on both columns to quickly identify candidates for removal.
      • Select multiple CFs and delete them in bulk to save time and effort.

       

      API Changes: 

      • New API 'DELETE customFields' accepts up to 50 IDs of custom fields to delete.
      • Existing API 'GET customFields' now accepts new filter and returns new usage data.

      After 8.16 release, please visit its API documentation for more details

       
      All that will be soon available to you in Jira DC 8.16.

      Thank you for your feedback and your patience!

       

      Kind regards,
      Ankit Tiwari

      Description

      NOTE: This suggestion is for JIRA Server. Using JIRA Cloud? See the corresponding suggestion.

      It would be nice to be able to deal with custom fields using Jira REST API.

      At the moment, it's possible to get some info by retrieving editmeta :

       http://example.com:8080/jira/rest/api/2/issue/{issueIdOrKey}/editmeta

      But you cannot add, edit, or delete custom fields via JIRA REST API (as you can in the admin section).

      Workaround

      The third party plugin Jira Customfield Editor provides REST endpoints for the CRUD operations on custom fields.
