How to set the project name to a custom filed?

As the title says.
When I move an issue from project A to B, then I want this issue can display the project which it moved from. So I think is that I can set the project name to a custom filed.
I want to stroe the project name in a custom filed. The filed can be txt type, can it possible? Use script runner? How to write it? Hope someone can help. thanks!

You need a "listener" for that, as "move" is not a workflow action.  Start at https://jamieechlin.atlassian.net/wiki/display/GRV/Listeners

As you say, I'd add a custom text field (let's call it "previous project") and then code a listener with this pseudocode :

if (event = move) then { 

Get old project name from the event

Set custom field value to project name }

I can't code this stuff from memory, but the examples and comments on that page should get you into it.
