List of Custom Fields

We are looking to programatically update custom field values using an Alteryx Workflow. We have done this succesfully, however, we want to create a process that is easy to move between development and production.


In order to do that we would like to avoid explicitly stating the custom field ID within the workflow, however, we are not sure how to fetch the relevant custom field ID otherwise?


As an example, if we are looking to update the 'Classification' custom field that we have created, we would like to search connect to find the relevant custom field ID for this column, and then update it.


However, this 'search' piece I can't seem to perform, either via a luecene query or via the Connect REST API.


Anyone have any ideas?
