Project categories in filter results Edited

I would like to see project category names in my filter/search results. Now I can use categories to search for my issues but then exporting results I do not have names of those project categories as an additional column.

How can I do it?

Project Category is not a field on the issue. It is a metadata on the project. You can only export the fields on the issues.

If it is a critical requirement, you can create a calculated custom field to hold the value of the project category and then export that.

Ok - now it is clear :) Thanks Jobin.

Could anyone tell me more about it? I've installed JIRA Misc Custom Fields and now I can add such calculated custom field. I chose calculated text field and put such forlmula:

<!-- @@Formula: issue.get("category") -->

Unfortunately it is not so easy :(  Could somebody tell me how to construct that formula to get project category to that field?
