Advanced compare condition does not match "projectTypeKey" property on project picker custom field



We have a custom field called "Project picker" of the type "Project Picker (single project)".

The https://[Company][Issue] view shows the custom field as having the ID, Key, Name, and Type of project

customfield_10413: {
self: "https://[Company]",
id: "10039",
key: "AAAS",
name: "Atlassian As a Service",
projectTypeKey: "software",
simplified: false,

I want to use this for automated project access and do an "Advanced compare condition" of {{issue.customfield_10413.projectTypeKey}} equals software (or service-desk).


When the project picker custom field has a software project selected and the automation runs the issue does not match the condition.

@Rune Rasmussen -

Please give a try of this syntax 


I also recommend that you can utilize "Log action" when debugging smart value for custom fields in general.

Hope this helps.

Thank you for the suggestions.
It turns out that I missed the T in sofTware...

The "Log action" is really neat. Wasn't aware of it, but it'll be a good tool to have going forward.

The syntax of {{customfield_10413.projectTypeKey}} and {{issue.customfield_10413.projectTypeKey}} gives the same value with using the Log action.
