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)
