I want to display project-level information on issue screens and reports

On the main issue screens (task and sub-task), I would like some project information to appear - such as Project Category and Project Lead.  I would also this information to be included in filter results (reports).

I realise I can do this via custom fields, but that would entail entering / selecting the information every time a task is created; and would mean updating it manually on every task within a project should the information change.  Having the system automatically derive it would be the preferred option - is there a way to do this?

You can do it with Scriptrunner (other scripting apps might support both of my suggestions, but I really don't know of another app that does the first option)

  1. Create a web panel that extracts and displays the data.  You could put the panel almost anywhere on screen and it will not affect the issue or need maintenance.
  2. Create a scripted field that displays what you need.  This will appear a part of the issue data and be searchable (and will also not need any maintenance)

Many thanks, I'll give it a try!  Have not yet used Scriptrunner, should be an adventure!
