If you have script runner, please use this script post function in the create step transition.

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.IssueManager;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.MutableIssue;
void setSummary(String key,String newSummary) {
IssueManager im = ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager();
        MutableIssue issue = im.getIssueObject(key);
setSummary(issue.getKey(),issue.getSummary()+" "+issue.getReporter().getDisplayName());

How can we apply this script to run for only one specific project.

We have shared workflow and this script should apply only for one particular project.
