You can use script runner plugin to  fetch the value and then update the custom field

getProjectCategoryForProject(Project project)

Thanks. I tried that, but I get always the same error:

Have you used script runner / groovy before?

You need to import the classes, the snippet which I shared with you is from the docs and thus you need to create an instance of the class ProjectCategory and then update  the custom field.

Yes I used sript runner and added a groovy scripted field, but I didn't import any classes.


So I guess I first have to figure that out, right?

Yes, just import the class, it's easy, look up the api in the link i shared.

import com.atlassian.jira.project.ProjectManager

and then create an instance of this class and call the getProjectCategoryForProject(Project project) method and then you can get projectCategory object and get the name of the category

import com.atlassian.jira.project.ProjectManager
import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
//Test para Console
def issueKey = "IESD-14862"
def issueManager = ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager()
def issue = issueManager.getIssueObject(issueKey)
//def issue = issue as Issue"issue: "+ issue)

def projectManager = ComponentAccessor.getProjectManager()
def project = projectManager.getProjectCategoryForProject(issue.getProjectObject())
