Since you have a collection on project keys for each project you have to do a loop over all projects. Here is a code example how to get all project keys:

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.project.Project
import com.atlassian.jira.project.ProjectManager

ProjectManager projectManager = ComponentAccessor.getProjectManager();

List<String> prjKeys = new ArrayList<>();

for(Project project: projectManager.getProjectObjects()){

return prjKeys.toString()

can you please share your code.. I'm also working on something related to this
