How to get Epic Link customFieldID

Is there a way to get Epic Link customFieldID when Jira installation was done in German?

It has a different name so its not found when trying to get it using “Epic Link” name using the API
epic-german

Will it be different for every Jira translation?
How do I detect Jira system language used for the installation?

I believe the field should always have the key “com.pyxis.greenhopper.jira:gh-epic-link” so you might be able to grab the field using that.

Thx, that is what we used :slight_smile:

The answer probably should be ‘use the jira software API’. Classes like https://docs.atlassian.com/jira-software/6.7.7/com/atlassian/greenhopper/api/customfield/ManagedCustomFieldsServiceImpl.html offer getEpicLinkCustomField. This would get you the right field even in the case of duplicates.
