Try this, it will work

function getSummary() {
var key = this.JIRA.Issue.getIssueKey(); 
var summary;
     AJS.$.ajax({
        url: "/rest/api/2/issue/" + key,
        type: 'get',
        dataType: 'json',
        async: false,
        success: function(data) {
            summary = data.fields.summary;
        }
     });
  
     return summary;
};

getSummary();

I am sure there is an easier way, but this surely works

 

Happy weekend!
