Is it possible to find a field on the whole org?

Is it possible to find a field with a specific name on the whole org? For example, I want to find a field called "employee native language". Are there ways I can do this?

Hi Nik,

Greetings to you!

If you want to search for a specific field you can use the "Search Setup" from the Setup page. (Setup > Search box at top). This tool searches across all objects.

If you want a list of all fields on specific objects you can view all fields from the object page. (Setup > Object Manager > Field and relationships)

If you want a more exhaustive list of all metadata you can use Workbench ( From this tool (Info > MetaData Types & Components > CustomField > Expand All) This will list every custom field within your org. 

If you want to know the usage of field in code, the best way is to use Eclipse. Download your entire code base and use Eclipse's search function to search all Classes, triggers, and such. Reports and analytic snapshots are accessible this way as well. If your org is small, you should be able to download everything, including objects and custom fields (as any given field can be used in another formula field). If your org is large, you may have to chunk it out into different projects.

You can also refer to below app exchange tool:

Also, take a look on below app to get all salesforce schema list:

I hope it helps you.

Kindly let me know if it helps you and close your query by marking it as solved so that it can help others in the future.

Thanks and Regards,

Hello folks!! I'm having the same issue: I need to find a specific field and I don't know to which object it belongs to. I tried using the "Search Setup" from the Setup page as suggested above, and even though I got a list of fields, the one I'm looking for was not there. I'm pretty new in the Salesforce world so I don't know how to refer to the apps mentioned here like downloading the entire metadata for instance. Any suggestions to find the field being inside the org?? 

Thanks in advance!!
