JIRA Obsolete custom fields are displayed when doing an issue search using JQL
- When doing a JQL search for an issue, fields with the same name are displayed although one of them is obsolete and not used (see screenshot below).
- A new custom field was created to replace an existing one which has the same name. The obsolete field has its Search Template set to Free Text Searcher instead of None.
- Set the Search Template of the obsolete field to None.
- Do a Background re-index during a non-busy period.
