How to Check for if an Issue w/ Summary Already Exists in a Project

Our users would like to use a post function to create an issue in a specific project with the condition that an issue with the same summary does not already exist in the target project.

in the conditional execution script, you can use a JQL query to check whether an issue already exists with the same summary:

!jqlSearch("project=PROJ and summary ~ \"${issue.summary}\"",1)

Thanks David!

Would you know how I can write a condition such as:

!!issue.get("SD_Project Name")
!jqlSearch("project=(value of the above field if present) and summary ~ \"${issue.summary}\"",1)

 Thank you for your help ahead of time :) !


issue.getAsString("SD_Project Name") && 
!jqlSearch("project=\"${issue.getAsString("SD_Project Name")}\" and summary ~ \"${issue.summary}\"",1)
