It would be better something like issue.getProjectObject().getName() but your code should work. I don't see an error, and I have just put your code in a postfunction and it works. Nevertheless I have experienced some kind of hangs with scriptrunner script console from time to time, so I would try to log out and log back in, closing the browser and even clearing the browser's cache.

I believe that the console is just a java interpreter and is not "aware" that the issue object will be defined at execution time. That is why it is showing a warning that it is not declared. Also your code is fine, it works in groovy (which is meant to have more simple syntax).

Thanks for the explanation of the console.
