Optimize your custom fields

This feature is currently rolling out to cloud customers. Your site may not reflect these changes, or you might not see it in your site just yet.

The Site optimizer tool helps administrators clean up their site, including removing unused or out-of-date custom fields. Removing these fields can improve the speed and responsiveness of your site.

The processes described in this section are only possible with the Jira Software Administrator permissions.

View custom fields optimizer

To view the custom fields clean-up tool, select System from your global settings, Site optimizer, then Custom fields from the sidebar menu.

This page shows you:

  • the total number of custom fields in your site

  • our recommended ideal number based on performance data

    • This recommendation is not a hard limit and can be exceeded. However, we feel this number reflects where your site will begin to experience degraded performance.

  • your usage compared to this recommended number, and

  • the last time anyone cleaned your site using this tool

Based on these numbers, you can make large-scale changes to the custom fields in your site such as deleting them.

Delete unused custom fields in bulk

  1. Under the header Clean up custom fields, you’ll see all the unused company-managed custom fields in your site.

  2. Select the ones you want to delete, or use the search bar to find a specific one

  3. Select Move to trash. In the modal that pops up, confirm your choice.
