I suspect you're looking at a select list and getting the id of the option back, rather than the text of the option?

Problem is you don't say where you're running this code, so I'm not sure what to tell you. Is it in Jira somewhere? Plugin? Script? External connection over SOAP or REST? An independent program reading data some other way?
